The Isle Of Man TT

I saw this article on Jalopnik recently, and it reminded me how much I love watching Isle of Man videos.  Also, they kind of remind me of my drive to work!  ;)

"Here’s The Lap That Destroyed The Isle Of Man TT Record, Narrated By The Driver"

Here are the YouTube videos, not only of the record-breaking lap in the car, but the even faster record-breaking motorcycle lap!  WOW!!!

First, from Suburu's YouTube channel:
"2016 Subaru WRX STI Isle of Man TT -- Flat Out"

I love all the information on the screen, showing both what the car is doing as well as the driver.

Now, from the Official Isle of Man TT YouTube channel:
"INSANE Speeds! Michael Dunlop RST Superbike TT 133.393mph - Lap RECORD!"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nlzxR6lN7Q
That is absolutely incredible riding, and a wonderful BMW motorcycle I might add.
