Last instalment of Microdave's memories of the TT races (previous instalments here and here): IOM TT 1979 (continued). The last instalment - A few more from that trip: My father and Stanley Woods with one of his bikes was taken at Jurby airfield on the 7th June 1979.
Another shot of one of his Velocettes at Jurby.
An unknown Matchless seen at Jurby.
Mike Hailwood (no8) taken on the Cronk y Voddy straight doing (we think) about 180mph. This was taken on the 4th June 1979.
The Silk 700s is a rare beast, and was pictured at the Vintage Rally at Castletown on the 7th. This was a hand built derivative of the pre war Scott Squirell, which my father and grandfather both owned.
I hope these have been of some interest to you, and any comments are welcome. MD
Thanks to Microdave for sharing some interesting and personal material. Hope you all enjoyed it. R
