I mean bikes capable of over 200mph on circuits that consist of everyday country lanes the rest of the year, 100mph plus average speeds etc?

I remember watching the Armoy Armada and would love the get a copy of it now, Joey, Frank Kennedy and Mervin ???. Can I assume by your name that you are not a fan of F1
P.S Hi Eric, How are you doing?

I'm not sure where you could get a copy of that program on the Armoy Armada, it was shown during a tribute night to Joey Dunlop over the summer. Lots of very cool stuff including Joeys then record lap of the Isle of Man TT (on board camera, makes F1 look like a game)
I always knew Joey Dunlop would die during a race he loved it too much to give it up, still there are a lot worse ways to go than dieing doing the thing you love.
*BTW* I forgot about the circuits in the Republic ;)

Unfortunately, here in Portugal we don't have many of that kind to watch. We used to have the great Vila Real road circuit but they stopped racing there in the 80's (88 or 89?).
For me this type of race (and rally) is the very last inhereritance of the real racing. I am tired of the modern gravel buckets they call "circuits" (e.g. Montmeló, new Nüburgring, Magnt-Cours, etc.).
So here is my question:
Can anyone give me some information about all these TT circuits (track maps, locations,...)?
I already have Isle of Man and Dundrod, but Faugheen, Skerries, Fore, Loughshinny, Leitrim as well as that Estonian race where Dunlop died are new for me.
I'd like also to know if there is a ragular TT championship, if the FIM rules it and it is possible to collect somehow some official information (is there an official homepage for instance?).

Thank God !
Although now that I think about it...nah!, forget it.
(Yes, the Grand Prix vs. F1 theme crossed my mind, sorry)

I've got a count that goes to 199 drivers that paid speeds ultimate price on the mountain circuit.
But i never found any names.
Can anyone fill me in ?
