Spectators at yesterday's Isle of Man TT Sidecar race narrowly missed being hit by competitors.

A video, posted on YouTube by Luisa Savino-Sheeley, caught the tense moment number 47 veered round the Ramsey Hairpin bend, before crashing through barriers.

Chairman of the IOM TT Marshals' Association Terry Holmes confirmed that no one was hurt during the incident:

It was like a parting of the waves, at slow speed, which gave spectators plenty of time to move. Luckily, there wasn't a heavy population of people nearby.
