2016 IOM Classic TT Norton Rotary Racer

Great quality video (over an hour) of a Norton Rotary Racer during the IOM TT Classic TT Race.

This is the Norton Rotary Racer which uses a 500cc two-rotor Wankel engine.

Sounds like an N/A rotary

With 6 power pulses per engine revolution there's plenty of performance and not a lot of engine braking with rotaries either. But all those power pulses reminds me of the problems 2 stroke V4 GP bikes had with traction. Then in the pit stop they notice the rider is covered in oil - but they still carry on for another lap. Insane!

Norton rotary project continued with the NRV 588 and was working on a 700cc version, but the project was eventually dropped.

Brian Crighton, who was the designer of all the rotary racers, picked up the project under his name and completed the 700cc version, now called the CR700P.
200-210 HP, 100 ft/lbs torque, and 298 lbs weight.
