A young Murray Walker commentates with Peter Arnold on a memorable selection of sounds from original recordings of the greatest motorcycle road races in the world - the Isle of Man TT.
1965-68 was a period of prolific machine development. The sheer mechanical ingenuity of the Japanese and Italian factories produced some amazing racing projectiles, the like of which will be never seen on the race track again. Now you can hear again the fabulous sounds of machines like the 125cc 5-cylinder, 250 and 296 6-cylinder and 500 4-cylinder Hondas; 350 and 500 3-cylinder MVs; 125 4-cylinder Yamahas; 350 and 500 4 cylinder Benelli fours plus the 250 4-cylinder Suzuki. And who better to be in charge of the chorus than legends of the era like Hailwood, Agostini, Read and Ivy - all 'on full song' around the fabulous TT Mountain Circuit.
Using state-of-the-art equipment, these original Stanley Schofield recordings have been digitally remastered in stereo for your optimum listening enjoyment.
