Bob was robbed

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

On look­ing at the huge posters given in your TT edi­tion (May 24) I was ap­palled to see that you had robbed the great Bob Mcin­tyre of the hon­our of the first 100mph lap in 1957. Apart from be­ing in all the record books Bob him­self de­scribes it in his book. It was Ge­off Duke in 1955 who was first cred­ited with a ton up lap later amended to 98.97mph.
