HAIL­WOOD CAN’T LEAVE IT ALONE

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Hail­wood had largely walked away from bikes to race cars by 1970, so this was big news. He did go on to com­pete in the Day­tona 200 in ’70 and ’71 aboard a BSA Rocket 3, but broke down on both oc­ca­sions while fight­ing for the lead. His real come­back came in 1978, when he re­turned to the TT after 11 years away and won the For­mula 1 race on a Du­cati 900SS.
