Yahoo Sports Australia:

Regarded as the 'world's deadliest event', riders can reach speeds of up to 322 km/h along 60km and 264 corners of open roads.

The event has been run since 1907 and ranks among the most deadly in motorsport, with 265 deaths to date in the TT races, Manx Grand Prix and Classic TT.

The only year the event was held without a fatality was way back in 1982.
