SCOT­TISH STAR BADLY IN­JURED

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Scots­man Alex Ge­orge was a fac­tory Honda rider at the 1980 TT and big things were ex­pected af­ter he took two stun­ning wins in 1979. That year, he pipped Mike Hail­wood to win the Clas­sic TT by three sec­onds and he also landed the For­mula One ti­tle. But his 1980 TT ended in dis­as­ter when he crashed in the fi­nal prac­tice ses­sion. He was on a life sup­port ma­chine and suf­fered a col­lapsed lung, but pulled through and was back at the TT in 1981!
