Book Description

23 May 2007
Run over the every-day roads of the Isle of Man for the past 100 years, the world-famous Tourist Trophy races have gripped the imaginations of successive generations of motorcyclists. From the earliest days of single-speed, belt-driven machines delivering 5 bhp, to the highly developed projectiles of today offering a fearsome 200 bhp, race fans have thronged the roadside banks and watched in awe as the best racing motorcyclists in the world rode the fastest machines of their day around the twists, turns and climbs of the 374 mile Mountain Course, all in pursuit of a coveted Tourist Trophy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but flawed 25 Sep 2007
By stk0308 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I've been on a tear buying up TT related books this year. This is #2 of 4. David Wright's book was an informative read that did keep my attention. It had enough raw data mixed in with anecdotes to be interesting. What I was disappointed in were some of the pictures chosen for the book. I don't know if it's printing costs that caused this, but there were a number of modern pictures that I know were color, but printed in black and white in the book. After seeing the original color shots, the B&W versions were a lot less impressive.

Pictures aside he did cover some things I had not yet read. The prize money thought the years. Where it came from, and to whom it went, was very interesting to me. The sidebars sprinkled around the book were nice touches of extra information as well. I'd recommend it as a good addition to anyone's TT library.
