110 YEARS OF THE TT 1927-1937 GUTHRIE & WOODS

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

The years be­tween World Wars One and Two were dom­i­nated by Jimmy Guthrie and Stan­ley Woods. Hail­ing from Haw­ick, the same Scot­tish bor­der town as Steve His­lop and Stu­art Eas­ton, Guthrie won six TTS be­tween 1930 and his death in 1937. Ir­ish­man Woods (above) won 10, in­clud­ing three dou­bles.

An­other mile­stone of the in­ter­war years was Harold Daniell’s first ever sub-25 minute lap set on a Nor­ton in 1938. The Lon­doner had such poor eye­sight he was turned down by the army but it didn’t stop him set­ting the new 91mph record that stood un­til 1950!
