Isle of Man TT crashes

The TT races are extremely dangerous because riders achieve high speeds on very narrow, twisting streets, roads and lanes flanked by stone walls and buildings. Between 1907 and 2009,  there have been 240 rider deaths during official practices or races on the Snaefell Mountain Course (this number includes the riders killed during the Manx Grand Prix and Clubman TT races). The worst year for fatalities was 1970 when six riders lost their lives at the TT.
