Empty 'Formula Win' race fuel drum

Date made: 2016

Description: An empty fuel drum, used at the 2017 Isle of Man Tourist Trophy (TT) races by Honda Racing. Donated to Manx National Heritage directly by Neil Tuxworth (Honda Racing's Team Manager) at the end of Practice Week. As Honda Racing had only one rider at the 2017 TT (Guy Martin) there is a good chance the fuel from this can went into his machine.

Black, red and grey can with pictures of racing cars, trucks and motorcycles, maker's name ETS Racing Fuels and manufacture date at bottom of can 2016.

In 2017 Guy Martin crashed out of the Superbike race and did not start the Senior race. He came second in the TT Zero race for Mugen that year. 2017 was his last appearance at the TT.
