Many folks are familar with the Tourist Trophy races held on The Isle of Man....the motorcycle TT races are still run there today.
From 1928 to 1936 there were TT races held in Ireland (in Ulster, in Northern Ireland).
I found a Japanese website that apparently displays a modern recreation of the Ards TT, complete with many glorious vehicles from back in the day. The pictures are not high quality and some are a bit fuzzy. On the other hand, there are great pictures of local Irish scenery and people.
Since it is in Japanese, you are not likely to understand any of the text (other than "rulle7") and you may have to decline adding the language packs to your computer, but the old crocks are worth seeing.

The site can be viewed at:
