Magic of The TT – A century of racing over The Mountain


Mac McDiarmid


As the Isle of Man celebrates 100 years of the greatest road race in the world, the TT has come full circle — as the ultimate test of both motorcycle technology and the men who pit their sophisticated machines against the cruelest circuit on earth.

During that century, horsepower has soared from a handful, when two-wheelers began racing over The Mountain, to over 200 today.  Mac McDiarmid tells the whole story — history, circuits, machines, riders, races and risks, as well as the whole TT experience for armies of road race fans.

There can be no better author to write a celebration of the Isle of Man TT than Mac McDiarmid, whose Joey Dunlop tribute book received outstanding reviews and sales success.

As a former TT racer and the long-time TT correspondent of Motocourse, he has this race in his blood – he even lives on the Island. This evocative book presents a lavishly-illustrated collection of themed chapters commemorating the greatest motorcycle road-racing event in the world.
