5.0 out of 5 stars Small Book Highlights TT History 6 Nov 2013
By Ricardo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A small book, but a wonderful read with great photos covering the history of the Isle of Man TT.

All the great names and marques of TT history are well represented along with many lesser known riders of accomplishment. Small bore and sidecar fans aren't neglected either. If you think the racing is dangerous now ( and it most assuredly is ), take a look at the "early days" with narrow barely paved ( or less ) crowded streets and what the book amusingly refers to as "street furniture" everywhere! As a centenary souvenir the book covers every year the motorcycle races have been held,from 1907 through 2006 with maps of the courses used.

There is no attempt to side step the danger of racing at the Isle of Man, or controversy regarding rider safety; there are accident photos, mention made of riders who died racing the TT and also of World Champion Barry Sheene and five time Senior victor, Giacomo Agostini, both of whom criticized the TT's dangers and refused to return.

But, along with them are photos of everyone's hero, Mike Hailwood during his historic Ducati ride, TT legend Joey Dunlop showered in silver and fittingly, the last photo is of a much older Agostini presenting "new man", John McGuinness, with the trophy following his Senior TT victory.

The only item missing from this compact and lively book is a listing of all the TT winners. However, you can only pack so much in a small volume and this one is well done and certainly worth the price.
