We usually think of the Isle of Man when we hear the words TT.
But this footage was shot at the 2019 Czech TT.
Listen to the Yamaha R6 in all its glory.
When we hear the words “TT” for Tourist Trophy, the first thoughts are always of the legendary Isle of Man TT. But there are others around world such as this 2019 Czech TT.
In this onboard footage shot by competitor Murtanio on his Yamaha YZF-R6, you get to see what a TT race is all about.
Blasts through the town centre with only sandbags separating the riders from buildings, while fences, trees, hedges line other parts of the track. Spectators are behind a number of these spots too and you can see some of them leaning over the fences to shoot pictures on their phones.
But nothing could take away the excitement in the footage as the R6 screams and howls it way around the “track.”
Here you can see Murtanio messing up the first few corners and was overtaken by another competitor on a Honda CBR600RR. He then got stuck behind for a number of laps while the leaders took off into the distance.
We know what you’re thinking: Why don’t they hold races like this in Malaysia. Ulu Yam-Batang Kali or Bukit Tinggi, Pahang would be great places. But look at their road condition.
Anyway, enjoy this clip which is unimpeded by commentary. There are many other such clips on Murtanio’s YouTube channel including a few on the Triumph Daytona 675.
