The 2013 Isle of Man TT race[i] generated extra highlights this year as 47 Action Cams were fitted to the leading racers, capturing some amazing content which can now be viewed on the Sony Action Cam YouTube channel.

Designed to capture video footage from the most extraordinary of places, Action Cam brings together the best of Sony technology into a 90g body including a 16.8MP Exmor R sensor, Image Stabilisation and Slow Motion Photography.

Christopher Coote, Producer at North One TV commented: “We were impressed with the picture and sound quality of the Action Cam that delivered output which belied its size. We needed a camera solution which was unobtrusive but enabled us to capture the adrenalin rush experienced by the TT riders and the Action Cam fitted the bill perfectly. This is why we adopted it as the official camera of the TT Races this year.”

[i] The Isle of Man TT is a race of legend! It is one of, if not THE most challenging races in the World, and not for the faint of heart. The 37.73 miles is the ultimate test of mind, body and machine, with average speeds of 131.671 mph around this fabled mountain course, nothing can prepare you for the spectacle of the Isle of Man TT.
