When men were men


Motorcycle News (UK) - - TT 2017 PREVIEW -

The First World War meant there was no TT in 1917, but by 1927 the full Snae­fell course was in oper­a­tion and speeds were soar­ing with av­er­age laps just un­der 70mph. Alec Ben­nett won the Se­nior on a Nor­ton, Fred­die Dixon took the Junior and Wal Han­d­ley took the Light­weight TT. Han­d­ley would have won the Junior too but his bike stopped on the last lap. The races were over seven gru­elling laps with each race tak­ing about four hours to com­plete!
