The Isle of Man TT is probably the most dangerous race in the world, with 242 deaths in 107 years of existence.

The Isle of Man TT (Tourist Trophy) Race has seen more fatalities than any other motorcycle race — albeit in 100 years — with riders urging their bikes around narrow, winding roads and crumbling farmhouses at more than 300km/h.
Many of the 246 killed in the race were professionals taking part in the fastest division, the Senior TT. But others were amateurs, who compete on the 60km Snaefell Mountain Course on “Mad Sunday”, in the middle of the two-week event.
Attempts to protect riders at the most dangerous parts of the course have been made with safety bales wrapped around phone boxes and other obstacles.
A report by Jalopnik describes a Frenchman killed in practice this year, on a straight section of the infamous course. Another rider, Jamie Hamilton, was airlifted to hospital after he crashed during the Senior TT.
