The name Triumph has now been among the most famous names in motorcycling for over a century, and it has been involved in racing for nearly as long. Triumph motorcycles came second and third in the very first Isle of Man TT in 1907.

Triumph’s big break into the inter-war bike racing scene came with Edward Turner’s magnificent Speed Twin, launched in 1937. This modern, fast bike laid the foundations for Triumph’s success on and off the track for the next thirty years, spawning the Tiger 100, Tiger T110 and the classic Bonneville.

Mick Walker’s complete survey of Triumph’s racing history covers all the company’s racing machines and tells of its revival under new owner John Bloor. Illustrated with many archive photos, this is a book for all fans of Britain’s most famous motorcycle manufacturer.
