The exhilarating Isle of Man TT 2016 saw nearly every record in the book smashed, and smashed again in two weeks of sensational action that wasn’t without it’s controversy.
With wall-to-wall sunshine from day one of qualifying through, almost, to Senior race day conditions were better than any other meeting in recent memory and the stars of real road racing made the most of them.
Michael Dunlop and Ian Hutchinson laid down the early markers in qualifying, with Dunlop shocking the paddock by throwing in a seemingly casual 133mph lap in qualifying – the first at the TT over the magic 133 barrier.
That set the tone for race week and it became very much the Michael and Ian show as they constantly pushed each other to greater exertions in the Superbike, Supersport and Superstock races.
With two superb riders, on very evenly matched machines and in the form of their lives records were smashed into dust and the crowds were thrilled by spectacles of skill and technique on nearly every lap.
Sit back and enjoy the fastest TT ever, filmed from multiple vantage points, and hosted by Craig Doyle, James Whitham, Steve Parrish and former Senior TT winner Steve Plater – this is the essential memento of a truly remarkable TT meeting.
