Before you even draw breath to exclaim it – no, this hasn’t been fast-forwarded. This is the Isle of Man TT. The fastest road-faring race on Earth. The more you watch it, the more bewitching it is, as a row of fifty slack-jawed faces flash past in an instant.

Then the rest of the video happens. We’re quite happy coming along for the ride, but then the camera swivels, and our superfast piggyback at the TT is rendered somewhat pedestrian by an astonishingly quick Guy Martin, passing Horst Saiger on the Kawasaki like he’s standing still. We’re just watching this over and over…
