The best TT ever?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - TT 2017 PREVIEW -

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.
