about this item
An authoritative, illustrated record of the rich history of the world's most famous motorcycle raceThe Isle of Man TT is the most unique and celebrated series of motorcycle road races in the world. Since 1907, the world's most daring riders have hurtled around the 37-mile, 200-bend Snaefell Mountain Course, displaying levels of skill and bravery that beggar belief. The exploits of the great TT champions such as Joey Dunlop, Mike Hailwood, John Surtees, Giacomo Agostini, and John McGuinness are legendary, and this exceptional new book is the authoritative photographic history of an event that is bigger today than ever. Featuring more than 150 exceptional images, each with a special extended caption, this volume illustrates the great riders and their triumphs, race action from the beautiful—but often deadly—circuit, and the fanatical crowds that flock to the races each year in their tens of thousands. Edited by acclaimed motorcycling authors Bill Snelling and Michael Scott, the book brilliantly captures the spirit, excitement, and danger of one of the oldest and most revered events in world motorsport.
