Someone will say that cars are great when they have soul, but I think this is a cop-out. Machines do not have a soul, and claiming that they do is really a get-out clause to evade thinking properly about it. Rather, machines reveal the soul of humanity, which is much more interesting.
And then there’s the Isle of Man TT, which is the most dangerous road race of them all. Anybody with the skills, and the money to get there, can compete. People often die in this competition. It is a route filled with walls, houses, and trees. Where lowsides (sliding out) are safe on a track, they can be every bit as deadly as a high side (airborne dismount) if you collide with something.
Still, this is the most exhilarating road race I know of.
