TT course offers 'something different' despite danger

Ten-time winner Giacomo Agostini reflects on racing at TT

Giacomo Agostini, who has 15 Grand Prix World Championship titles - including eight in the top class - rode his race-winning MV Agusta at the Festival of Jurby this weekend.

The Italian led the campaign to drop the TT from the world championship due to safety concerns, resulting in the race being removed from the calendar in 1977.
