2014 Isle of Man TT Practice & Race Schedule isle of man tt course map 635x423

The 2014 Isle of Man TT is finally underway…sort of. With heavy rain on the Isle of Man today, the scheduled practice sessions had to be abandoned for safety reasons. The weather for Sunday is looking better though, and thus tomorrow will likely mean the practical start for what we consider to be motorcycling’s greatest event.

This year US fans will be able to follow the Isle of Man TT on the Velocity channel. If that’s not a part of your TV package, don’t worry; we’ve got some great TT coverage coming your way, straight from the Isle of Man. So stay tuned to Asphalt & Rubber for the latest on the Isle of Man TT sessions and happenings.

To aid in planning your sleep schedule, please find the provisional schedule of sessions after the jump.

    I regret to admit that I am drawn to the Isle of Man TT, like a moth is drawn to a bright flame. Despite the personal attraction, despite the love-hate relationship I have with the TT, the carnage of the TT disqualifies it from being a great event. It tarnishes the world of motorcycling, it kills far too many young men, and it should be stopped.

    In a recent article here about the death of Simon Andrews, a comment posted by “JZJ” poignantly summed up my emotions on the matter. I hope that JZJ would not mind me quoting him here…

    Correcting the above (sorrt).

    Quoting Jensen Beeler… “what we consider to be motorcycling’s greatest event”

    Quoting JZJ… “Of course there is the “they know the risks they are taking” angle, but I cannot abide by it. There are some risks which society deems excessive and therefore prevent. I am a life-long fan of virtually all forms of motorsports, but the risk run in street racing — particularly with the tremendous velocities easily obtained with modern bikes — is simply excessive. Take it to a track. That there are young men willing to accept these very high risks is not a justification for their regular and predictable deaths, and there should be a movement to step in and prevent these deaths in the name of collective sanity.”

  3. Somewhere in the course of modern society, we made the mistake of thinking that a life lived longer is a life lived better.

  4. Lewis Dawson says:

    I understand your sentiment, Jensen. And I generally agree with it, but not in this case. There are plenty of racing alternatives and they all have risks. But the risks of over-the-road racing are too extreme, simply off the scale.

  5. mudgun says:

    Sorry Lewis, but you don’t get to be the final say of what is too extreme and off the scale for other people. You do realize that there are many people, who if they could, would ban motorcycling on the street for everyone…for the exact same reason you say TT racing should be stopped.

  6. Lewis Dawson says:

    Mudgun, I am not sure what your point is, please clarify. Of course I don’t have final say in the matter. That is why I advocated “a movement to step in.” Also, I am aware some people would be happy to see all motorcycles banned, but a movement to advocate that would not get my support.

  7. mudgun says:

    Lewis, I misspoke. Meant to say “you and others of society who feel as you do”…. My point is there are hundreds of activities you, and others, may find too extreme but others choose to do. Why would you want to force your opinion on them in the first place? Just don’t watch.
