This CD features coverage of the dramatic 1959 TT. This was the year when the Senior TT was run in horrendous weather conditions, and in these recordings you can actually hear the howling wind which faced the riders on the Mountain as they battled for glory. You'll also hear the sounds of practice from the Mountain and Clypse courses, the Junior TT and the debut of Honda in the Isle of Man.
Plus, enjoy the 1958 Senior TT, including the atmospheric race build-up, incredible exhaust notes and interviews with the stars of the day.
