We are back on track with the eight-part “TT Legends” documentary, which follows the racing shenanigans of the Honda TT Legends road and endurance racing squad. After finishing with the Bol d’Or endurance race in Episode Two, Episode Three finds the Honda riders at the North West 200, one of the great Irish road racing events.

Like the Isle of Man TT, the North West 200 is held on public roads, but unlike the TT, this is not a time trial format. Instead, NW200 riders leave the starting line together, and swap paint and positions throughout the course. One of the fastest road races, riders reach well over 200 mph on their machines at the Irish road race.

    Okay, THAT was gripping. Crikey.

    This series is some really good craic. Amazing how they made what was an epic wet week look like it was a sunny beautiful event. The sun only came out just before racing started on race day. It is really the “North Wet”.

    Amazing. That pole, that curb, that crest, that chicane, those conditions. Phew!
