Tourist Trophy or TT racing is the best known and most demanding of the European motorcycle races.

History[edit]

First run in 1907 on the Isle of Man off the northwestern coast of England, the race attracted many riders from all over England as well as the European continent. The race was originally intended for motorcycles "similar to those sold to the public," called touring machines, and soon became known as the Tourist Trophy.
