The Velocette: over 60 world records

Date(s): 1926-1928

Scope & Content: A poster advertising Velocette motorcycles, which were used in international motorcycle racing from the mid-1920s through the 1950s.

The Isle of Man Tourist Trophy (TT) has over its long history contributed to the understanding and development of internal combustion engines, with innovations developed for motorcycles also applicable in a wider context. Advertising was quite open about the fact that 'racing improves the breed' as new developments trickled down to the high street. Brakes, fuels, tyres and oils have also benefitted from testing in the high intensity environment of TT racing.
