Manx National Heritage has teamed up with Official Isle of Man TT Races website – iomttraces.com – to deliver the definitive archive records of every TT Race since the event’s inception in 1907.
The results of every competitor who has ever completed a race around the TT Mountain Course are listed in the comprehensive directory.
You can compare the Mountain Course lap times from every TT from 1911 against Peter Hickman’s stunning Senior TT Race win at last year’s meeting when he set the new outright lap record of 135.452mph. Alternatively you can track a rider’s entire Mountain Course career from their early days of racing at the TT or MGP.
The instant ‘advanced search’ facility allows you to research the TT’s rich history through a drop down menu by races and years with the results from everyone one of the 99 TT Race meetings listed in the directory along with a short potted biography of many of the riders. Alternatively a cumulative list reveals that while Joey Dunlop has the most wins – 26 – John McGuinness (46) is the most successful in terms of podium finishes.
The database is driven by our own dedicated TT and MGP area on the iMuseum (imuseum.im) which contains over 7,000 TT and MGP related collections including historic documents and images. TT Special newspapers from 1930 to 1960 are also available to research.
Edmund Southworth, director, Manx National Heritage commented:
“As the Isle of Man’s agency responsible for the protection and promotion of the Island’s heritage and culture we are delighted to be presenting our archive information to race fans worldwide.”
“This is a great use of technology to make this huge wealth of data available and is appropriate that in the year of the 100th meeting of the TT Races, technology is making the results of everyone of those races available to view.”
“Knowledge Integration, our iMuseum support provider, has been key in making this ‘data push’ happen and we are also very grateful for the volunteer support, notably from TT archivist Bill Snelling that helps us improve our comprehensive data records that chart the entire history from the first race.”
The TT Results Database is now available at iomttraces.com.
