Isle of Man TT Races - An Al Jazeera IOMTT Fatal Attraction

Irish Real Road Racing Motorcycle Blog by Barbiegirl Northern Ireland

More than likely there are many who would now dispute the widely held view that the Isle of Man TT motorcycle real road race course is the world’s most dangerous – moi being one of those people. Those who still retain that view obviously haven’t been to Ireland – North or South - to witness truly horrendously dangerous public roads realroadracing circuits – real killers.

Problem is of course, finding anybody who genuinely cares one way or the other is nigh on impossible – likewise if one should attempt to establish the answer to another question – all concerned take extraordinary measures to wash away their responsibility – blood stained hands though are notoriously difficult to clean.

In a recent letter, DCAL unambiguously declared that safety arrangements for motorcycle road racing are not for Government, but fall entirely within the domain of the promoters/governing body of the sport, associate clubs and those who (for whatever reason) choose to take part in the sport.

For a definitive answer, moi suggests Al Jazeera should have asked DCAL and the MCUI-UC if motorcycle real road racing on public roads is a fatal attraction.

Al Jazeera @ Isle of Man TT - A Dangerous Addiction

'Motorcycle road racing is recognised as a dangerous sport involving riders and their machines travelling at speed around roadways that are normally used by private and commercial vehicles.’ MCUI-UC 2012

'Irish motorcycle real road racing can be safer, substantially so, problem is though, those with the responsibility to do so - (for whatever reason) - are either unwilling or incapable - possibly both - of taking the necessary positive action, allegedly.’
