TT Legends Documentary Episode 3North West 200
The North West 200 is one of the two road races in the World Endurance Championship, and since it is the first such even of the calendar, it is also regarded as one of the most important tests ahead of the whole season.

Held in the north-west region of Northern Ireland, the street circuit is also known as The Triangle, because of the similar-shaped race map.

The first NW200 race took place back in 1929, and Joey Dunlop's brother Robert has the most wins to date, 15. Robert unfortunately died in 2008, during the practice for the 125/250/400 race. His brother Joey has won the NW200 for 13 times, just like Michael Rutter, the most successful North West 200 rider alive.

The 2014 NW200 race week is scheduled 10-17 May. Find out more on the 2014 North West 200 on the official website.
