The Isle of Man TT motorcycle races, with an unrivalled history dating back to the first event of 1907, have proved more enduring than any comparable fixture in motor sport. The outbreak of World War Two in 1939 meant a seven-year break in racing, but happily the TT was revived in 1947 to grow bigger than ever. When the FIM world championships were inaugurated in 1949, the TT was the most demanding and important round in the calendar. In 1957 the TT’s Golden Jubilee saw 15 different manufacturers represented in the five-race programme. Going into the 1960s, the arrival of Japanese makers determined to prove their products on the Isle of Man’s unique Mountain Course greatly enlivened the racing. Like the images in The Golden Years Volume One (1913-1939), the photos here in Volume Two (1947-1962) are selected from the huge collection amassed over decades by the Douglas-based Keig photographic business.
