I’ve never used Vimeo on-demand before. But at $4.99 for a rental, this from director Luke Huxham, looks worth a watch:

…promises to be one of the most beautiful and in-depth looks at one of the deadliest races in the world. An annual event that’s taken place for over a century, the TT is a complex road course that spans the majority of its namesake isle, where top-tier superbikes and their riders go all-out — often just inches away homes and people. On-board footage from motorcycles in the race can be terrifying enough to make you queasy.
There have been a number of attempts at making this sort of film before and none of them have really worked. The general suggestion is that this one will be a bit different. It comes out on June 26th.
To the best of my knowledge, there was “only” one rider death during this year’s TT – that was Frenchman Franck Petricola.
