Breathtaking


Motor racing has its fair shares of beauty, danger, stupidity, and guts. In car racing, rally drivers are considered the craziest. However, rally's danger is incomparable to that of the legendary Isle of Man Tourist Trophy (TT). These guys are insane. Maybe I just have a natural aversion to running bikes through a street course, with stone walls on either side, at 200 MPH. Or maybe I'm just a wuss. But the IoM TT is the only motorcycle race I ever follow, morbidly. Then, when it's all over, the spectacle takes my breath away and I want to watch it all again. It starts tomorrow.
