I've ridden the course Its beautiful with lots of twisties. you've also got to keep in mind that these are public roads with all the bumps/leaves/patches that come with them. I'm frankly surprised every year that more people don't crash out...

I drove the course (was on the Isle for only 12 hours) two weeks ago. It is beaut. Also they maintaining the road in very decent condition, it is a public road with all that stuff mentioned above. And that UK type stone hedges along the road and the road is narrow...
The other cool thing on the Isle - no speed limits outside of towns
