TT danger has world watching

Perils highlighted by press again

TT is as ever drawing the attention of the world's press.

Journalists from all over have highlighted the perils of 'the world's most dangerous race', following the untimely death of Dan Kneen on the course last week.

NBC highlights the 146 riders who have lost their lives in the event's history, while the Washington Post brands the Island a 'high-velocity, all-stakes speed zone'.

Long-time TT critic Bernard Moffatt has again lamented the 'chaos and carnage' the fortnight brings, and questioned the effectiveness of the police.

But these visiting fans say the danger doesn't put them off.
