Each year, some of the most insane men in the world travel to a small island between England and Ireland, once there they race motorcycles at 200 mph plus over a series of closed off country lanes. The first race was held in 1907 with an average speed of 38 mph, in 2011 the average speed was 131mph and it creeps higher every year.

Take a deep breath and hit play on the film. You’ll be glad you did.
