In the early 20th century the English government refused to allow the closure of public roads for any sort of motor racing, so a proposal was put to the Isle of Man government. The 'Manx' government, spotting an opportunity, duly obliged and brought in new legislation to enable the closing of public roads for the sport of motor racing. From this decision the Tourist Trophy race was born and the Isle of Man was ready to take up the mantle of 'road racing capital of the world'! The Isle of Man TT Race was first held on the 28th May 1907 and has not looked back since. Today, most racers all come for one reason and one reason only, to pitch themselves against the greatest pure road race circuit of them all. Now, as the TT celebrates its 100th birthday, this film takes a nostalgic look back at five of the greatest ever TT races. Featuring legendary TT winners Geoff Duke, Mike Hailwood, Joey Dunlop and David Jefferies, this is a must have for all TT fans!
