I know it's still early days, but it's lapping slower than Hizzy on the Rotary, maybe they should have kept on developing that instead of buying in an Aprilia !

OK lets put this into context.
As an ex-road-racer, we know the risks and our families and friends know the risks, and it is our choice to race nobody else's.
The TT is a magnificent event and is as safe as it possibly can be, with out loosing the character of the event, if I was given the chance to race at the TT I would have.
Anybody know how many climbers died in Scotland this winter?
12 experienced climbers died, which is extremely sad for them and families, however these rarely make the headlines as they tend not to be spectacular accidents, compared with any accident in motorsport.
the TT will continue as long as riders want to race.

That's one way of viewing it

The deaths are an inevitable by-product of the events which bring millions into the IoM economy.
Will the IoM turn down the money by ending the TT and ManxGP...?
Not a chance.
They will simply continue to overlook the inevitable death toll and keep on raking in the cash.

What an idiotic statement to make, the IoM does not profit in any way, as you put it when riders are killed. In fact the exact opposite as it gives ammunition to the health & safety zealots who would love to see the races scrapped.
