The Isle of Man TT was for many years the most prestigious motor-cycle race in the world. The racing is held on public roads closed for racing by an Act of Tynwald (the parliament of the Isle of Man ). It is the oldest motor-cycle racing circuit still in use. The official lap record for the Snaefell Mountain Course is 17 Minutes and 12.30 seconds at an average speed of 131.578 mph.

Four motorcyclists were killed on open roads during the TT festival in crashes that resembled "war zones", Isle of Man Police have said.

Thirty-two people were also seriously injured during the festival, initial police figures show, in 92 crashes.

The fatalities among members of the public were in addition to the three competitors killed during events.

Isle of Man Police are reviewing its operation to establish if any safety improvements can be made in 2012.

In 2010, there was one fatality and 22 serious crashes during the TT fortnight.

This is pitiful. A thousand people freezing their butts off waiting to worship a rat. What a hype.
