1967 TT Races Isle of Man

Date(s): 1967

Scope & Content: A poster produced for the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy (TT) Diamond Jubilee: 'TT Races June 1967. Isle of Man. For the thrill of your life - and the Holiday too!'

1967 was the Diamond Jubilee of the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy (TT). In the Senior race that year Mike Hailwood was pitted against his young and glamorous rival, Italian Giacomo Agostini, who was riding for MV Agusta. The lead changed from lap to lap in this most dramatic of TT races. Further tension was added when the twist grip on Mike’s handlebar came loose and he was seen in the pits frantically hammering at it to get it back on. He went out to continue the race but Agostini was leading when his chain broke on the mountain, forcing him to retire. Hailwood took victory, but true sportsman that he was, not in the way that he would have liked to win, through the misfortune of a rival.
