More About This Title Isle of Man TT: The Photographic History
The 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 book is the authoritative photographic history of an event that is bigger today than ever. Featuring over 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. Written by acclaimed motorcycling authors Bill Snelling and Michael Scott, and featuring a foreword by Isle of Man TT legend John McGuinness, the book brilliantly captures the spirit, excitement and danger of one of the oldest and most revered events in world motorsport.
