Interesting Fact

The Isle of Man TT is one of the most prestigious races on the motorcycling calendar and takes place every year. The 37.33 mile circuit around the Isle of man is often referred to as the most dangerous road-race in the world and takes place on closed off public roads each summer.

The track has provided a constant testing ground where motorcycles and their components have been assessed under much harsher conditions than the average rider could ever expect to meet.

Local man John McGuiness also known as the’.Morecambe Missile’ has a long history of successes on the circuit and has clocked up 23 wins as of 2015.

His long relationship with Honda Racing has developed over many years and this bike was one of his most successful motorcycles he raced on.

Honda is the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer and introduced the Fireblade CBR1000RR in 2014. This latest incarnation of the sport bike is the seventh-generation of the series of motorcycles than began with the CBR900RR in 1992.

As well as this motorcycle, our Isle of Man Tribute on the 1st floor provides a fascinating insight into the history of the race with more bikes, videos and a huge wall display.
