The Isle of Man TT is not the only historic motorcycle race in the British Isles. Northern Ireland’s North West 200 is a 8.97 mile road course, nearly as old as the TT and just as bat-shit crazy. However, this race begins with a circuit-style grid start en masse, and several racers are now breaking the 200 mph barrier, with Stuart Easton hitting record-breaking 204 mph from Station corner to University. Apparently, that silly MotoGP stuff is for tossers.

    It’s like you read my mind. I watched NW200 footage all weekend after watching tons of Guy Martin videos, trying unsuccessfully to mimic his accent, and then wondering what else he likes, besides emulsions, tractors, and the TT.

      Where are you watching this footage? And where can one find motorcycle footage in general? I would love to know.

      Thanks.

    Psh, of course MotoGP’s for tossers, it’s what American Football is to rugby. All that run-off space is for pansies, real racers slide in to telephone poles and walls LIKE A MAN.

      Agreed!

      Keep up the good work Grant, this is one of the best features you’ve posted. Wonderful photography. Keep up the good work, you keep making those “tossers” at the mainstream bike mags look like incompetent fools.

    Lovely pics, fair brought a lump to the old throat seeing my homeland now I’m down under, especially real pubs! Road racing is still big all over the east coast of Ireland; part of my old commute used to be raced on … something I always had to try hard to forget when I was on my way to work.

    Anyone who likes these pics and hasn’t already done so should check out Stephen Davison’s book ‘Ragged Edge’ which is crammed with incredible shots of Irish racers.
