Motorcycle sport is all about action. And the Isle of Man is where it’s at when it comes to the most action-packed motorcycle event in the World - the Isle of Man TT Races.
1987 saw the TT celebrate its 80th anniversary. And in Action Man you can vividly see how, 80 years on, the TT has lost none of the magic for which it has always enjoyed worldwide renown. 50,000 race fans came from all over the world in 1987 to enjoy the ultimate pilgrimage and millions more wished they could be there.
Six of the best cameramen in the business will take you to over 100 different locations around the 37.73 mile Mountain Course during seven different races. Plus they will take you to over 100 more to enthrall and interest you between races!
Study the 140mph racing form in slo-mo at Ballacrye (where our cover shot of ‘King of the Roads’ Joey Dunlop was taken) or check out the more sedate performance of a rare 1950 Manx Norton in the Classic parade; step back on the pavement as Geoff Johnson flies past (literally!) six feet away as he exits Bray Hill, or duck as the Red Arrows burst over Peel Castle in another stunning aerobatics display; catch your breath as the late Phil Mellor takes Handleys Corner in a two-wheel drift at 100+ or cover your ears as Douglas Bay reverberates to a magnificent late-night firework display.
