Unofficially there are somewhere between 200 and 264 corners on the 37.73 mile Isle of Man TT “Snaefell Mountain Course”. Over. One. Single. Lap.
We say unofficially because it’s tough to give an exact number. The TT course contains so many tiny connecting kinks and curves, it’s difficult to say where one ends and the next begins.
Monaco has 12 turns; Silverstone has 18, even the the Nürburgring Nordschleife and Pikes Peak Hillclimb don’t really stack up; with 154 and 156 each. At 200mph on a Superbike, that’s a whole load of you’ve gotta-get-this-right. Or else.
Now throw in trees, walls, and houses just a few feet from the edge of the road, and you start to get the idea.
