Amerikanske ryttere på Isle of Man TT
I betragtning af at den første Isle of Man Tourist Trophy i 1907 næsten blev vundet af amerikanske Billy Wells, har ikke mange racere fra USA fulgt Wells 'føring til start / målstregen på øen. Ved hjælp af officielle poster indeholder listen nedenfor navnene på dem, der faktisk startede et TT-løb, selvom racerne ikke var færdige (DNF). Flere Yanks deltog i TT-løb, øvede og kvalificerede sig, men startede ikke (DNS); deres navne er dog ikke inkluderet efter standarderne for TT Riders Association, som kræver, at en racer i det mindste skal starte et TT-løb for at kvalificere sig til medlemskab i det, der engang blev regnet som den mest eksklusive klub i verden.

Der er mange grunde til, at så få amerikanere har deltaget i TT-løb på øen, men de største vanskeligheder for ville være TT-ryttere indtil for nylig har været logistiske og bureaukratiske; skønt øen er nærliggende territorium for britiske og europæiske ryttere, før jumbo jetfly transformerede rejser i 1970'erne, var det dyrt og kompliceret at få sig selv, sit hold og ens udstyr til øen. Det er mindre vanskeligt i dag, men som endda en kortvarig læsning af licenskravene online viser, skal forberedelserne til racing på Isle of Man TT begynde længe inden du kommer til The Island.
