Triumph: The Racing Story
|INSIDE:||180 b&w photos, 8 page col section|
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.
Triumphâ€™s big break into the inter-war bike racing scene came with Edward Turnerâ€™s magnificent Speed Twin, launched in 1937. This modern, fast bike laid the foundations for Triumphâ€™s success on and off the track for the next thirty years, spawning the Tiger 100, Tiger T110 and the classic Bonneville.
Mick Walkerâ€™s complete survey of Triumphâ€™s racing history covers all the companyâ€™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 Britainâ€™s most famous motorcycle manufacturer.
