The best TT ever?
Giacomo Agostini and Mike Hailwood were both at the height of their powers, duking it out all season for the world 500GP title. The Isle of Man TT saw them go all out for glory in the Senior TT. Agostini broke Hailwood’s lap record on the opening lap and the Brit took it back a lap later. The pair were never separated by more than a few seconds, but Ago’s chain snapped on the fifth lap and Hailwood cruised to glory setting a new race record that stood for eight years.
