Mike Hailwood

Considered by many experts to be the best motorcycle road racer ever, Mike 'the bike' Hailwood is a legend to whose achievements other riders can only aspire. He took his first world title at the age of 21 and went on to win eight further crowns with a total of 76 Grand Prix victories. Only the great Giacomo Agostini and Angel Nieto can claim to have enjoyed such success.

In 1959 and 1960, Mike won nearly every national race he competed in. Success in the World Championship was harder to come by, however, he was riding against factory teams with the latest bikes. Nethertheless, he still won in Ulster and further podium finishes secured 3rd place in the 125s and 5th overall in the 250s. During the next season, he raced in the 500cc class for the first time and finished an impressive 6th.

By 1961, Hailwood was undoubtedly the most promising young rider in the World Championship, but incredibly, he was still racing as a privateer and often on borrowed machines. Honda lent him a 250cc four-cylinder RC162 but it had few of the ultra-lightweight components used on the factory bikes.

One of the most well-loved riders of all times, Hailwood was the initiator of the frog style, with the knees pointing outwards. He raced and won in all the classes, including the 125, which certainly was not suited to his height. He led difficult motorcycles such as the MZ 250 and the first Honda 500 to victory. He reached the finish lines despite some frightening falls. He won a TT race even after spending years away from the world of motorcycling and a nasty car accident, still with a manner marked by exemplary fairness with his rivals.

Born into a wealthy family in Oxford in 1940, he started racing at the tender age of 17 with the help of a sizeable cheque he received from his father that he used to buy a semi-official MV. He became official in 1961, and was MVs leading man after Hocking pulled out in 1962. He then won four consecutive titles with the 500 from 1962 to 1965. He went to Honda in 1966, and his memorable duels with former team-mate Agostini elated and divided up fans.

After turning to car racing with satisfactory results, Mike the Bike made occasional appearances in motorcycle races in 1971 and in brilliant T.T. exploits of 1978 and 1979. As a mocking sign of fate, he died in an ordinary road accident together with his young daughter Michelle on 22 March 1981.

Giacomo Agostini

Giacomo Agostiny 1975 à Daytona

Giacomo Agostini champion du monde motocyclettes 350 et 500 cm2 Giacomo Agostini

 

As legend has it, when he was a young boy, Giacomo Agostini asked his father for permission to race on a bike. His father, who wanted his son to be a hard-working accountant, turned to the family's lawyer and asked for his advice. The lawyer confused motorcycling with cycling and encouraged him to go ahead with such a wholesome sporting aspirations.

Agostini achieved an astonishing 122 Grand Prix victories and rightly so, the respect of every opponent he raced against. His first race was in 1961 in the popular Trento-Bondone climb, he rode a Morini 175 (bought on installments) and finished second. A few months later, the Morini factory contacted Agostini and following a practive race, he signed for the team.

A year later he took his debut junior title and MV Agusta made him an offer he couldn't refuse. In the 1965 season Agisini and Mike Hailwood were team mates ,both riders competed in the 350cc and 500cc categories, Agostini finished runer-up in the 500cc but won the 350cc class. At the end of the season Hailwood moved from MV Agusta to Honda.

In 1966, Hailwood was Agostini's main rival in the 500cc class, Ago succedded in beating his former team mate. From this point on, Agostini secured an astounding succession of World Championships in the 350cc and 500cc classes, see below.

In 1973 tragedy struck Agostini when two of his friends and rivals, Pasolini and Saarinen, lost their lives in an accident at Monza, Phil Read also took his 500cc title. Ago left MV Agusta in 1974 for Yamaha in the 350 and 500cc classes, coming second to Phil Read in the 500cc category but winning the Daytona 200 at his first attempt.

In 1975, Agostini took his revenge on Phil Read and won the 500cc championship. However, younger riders were begining to come through and he decided to return to MC Agusta as a privateer in 1976, alternating his appearance on track with a Suzuki 500. A year later he finished his career on a Yamaha. Following this, for two seasons he raced single-seater F2 and F-Aurora cars with little success.

In 1982, Agostini made a return to the World Championship as manager of the Yamaha Marlboro team. Continuing his phenomenal success, the team secured three senior world titles with the American Eddie Lawson. Luca Cadalora and Alex Criville also rode for the team. Some years later, as manager of the Cagiva 500cc outfit, Agostini renewed contact with Lawson and worked with other talented riders such as Alex Barros, John Kocinsky and Doug Chandler.

Patrick Pons Champion du monde

Pour la première fois dans l’histoire des sports mécaniques un Français, Patrick Pons, devient champion du monde en remportant en 1979 le championnat de vitesse moto 750. Des pilotes émérites comme Kenny Roberts, Barry Sheene, Johnny Cecotto, Michel Frutschi, Graziano Rossi (le père de Valentino), Marc Fontan, Raymond Roche... Participent à ce championnat baptisé "Formule 750" par la FIM (Fédération Internationale de Moto) et qui est, même s’il ne fait pas partie des Grands Prix, l’équivalent d’un vrai championnat du monde.

Les courses se déroulent sur deux manches dans lesquelles les pilotes donnent le meilleur d’eux-mêmes, à l’instar du champion 1978 de la catégorie Johnny Cecotto, du Suisse Michel Frutschi et, bien entendu, de Patrick Pons.

Au terme d’une fantastique saison, Patrick est couronné avec 154 points devant Michel Frutschi 132 points et Johnny Cecotto 126 points.

Kenny Roberts arrived in Europe for his Grand Prix campaign in 1978 having dominated racing in the United States. Born on 31st December 1951 in Modesto, California, Kenny Roberts got his mother to lie about his age so he could go racing. Pretty soon the kid was winning races on his 100cc bike by such a margin that he was soon put into the 250cc class on his smaller machine! He joined the AMA national circuit in 1970 as a novice and was picked up by the Yamaha factory while still a junior. Kenny won the AMA Grand National Championship in 1973 in his second year as a 'senior' level rider - a feat which meant taking part in a gruelling schedule of events including: dirt racing on half-mile and mile ovals, TT racing (which was dirt-tracks with jumps), road-racing and short-track racing.

He won the title again in 1974, but by a much bigger margin. By now road-racing was beginning to be the focus of Kenny's amazing capacity for concentration and dedication. He had already raced in the British Trans-Atlantic races and taken on Giacomo Agostini at Imola so it wasn't surprising that he eventually went GP racing full-time from 1978 with Yamaha. To learn tracks faster, Kenny took part in the 250 and F750 races too, which was no mean feat on the punishing and often dangerous circuits of the day. He won the 500cc GP title first time out, winning it the next two seasons as well, making him the first rider to win three back-to-back titles since Agostini. The titles were the icing on the cake in a memorable career which included an amazing rivalry with Britian's Barry Sheene, as well as the classic title confrontation with Freddie Spencer in 1983 which went down to the wire at Imola. 'King' Kenny lost the title to Spencer by just two points.

Retirement after the 1983 season didn't slow him down. He ran a team with Wayne Rainey and Alan Carter in the 1984 250cc championship before taking a few years off to re-enter in 1986 with the Lucky Strike Yamaha team. In 1990 with Marlboro backing, Kenny steered the team to the 500cc championship with Rainey and the 250cc title with John Kocinski. Rainey would emulate the feat of his team-boss and friend by re-taking the title in 1991 and 1992. Kenny eventually decided to go his own way and become a race bike manufacturer in his own right in 1997, but his spirit and determination marks him out as one of the great Yamaha champions.

Goeff Duke

Goeff Duke Goeff DukeGoeff Duke on Gillera

 

Date of Birth - 29th March 1923

Lancashire born Geoff Duke came to prominence after winning the 1949 Senior Clubmans TT and the Senior Manx Grand Prix. He was snapped up for the Norton works team for the 1950 TT, finishing second in the Junior and shattering the lap and race records on winning the Senior! He took three more victories for Norton before changing to Gilera in 1953. In 1955 he won the Senior, and was declared the first rider to lap at 100mph, but this was corrected two laps later to 99.97mph. His final race was the 1959 Junior when he finished fourth on a Norton. Duke, a six-times TT winner and six-times World Champion took the sport to a whole new level with his professionalism. He was the first rider to wear revolutionary one-piece leathers, was crowned Sportsman of the Year in 1951, awarded the RAC Seagrave Trophy and, in recognition of his services to motorcycling, was awarded the O.B.E. in 1953.

At the start of his motorcycle racing career, Duke was unable to challenge the AJS Porcupine 500 and Velocette 350 of his competitors on his outdated Norton International. The McCandless brothers designed a new frame for Norton, the Featherbed, and it was a vastly superior machine. All that was needed was a rider to make the most of it. In 1950, the 500cc World Champion was the Italian Umberto Masetti on a Gilera. The next year Geoff Duke won both the 350 cc and 500 cc classes. This was due partly to the excellence of the new Norton frame, but above all to Duke's extraordinary skill and his ability to adapt his riding style to the single-cylinder machine.

In 1952, Masetti triumphed in the 500 cc category on his powerful Gilera, while Duke made the 350 cc class his own. The smaller categpries were dopminated until the end of the 1905s by the Italians Bruno Ruffo - who won titles riding Mondial (125 cc) and Guzzi (250 cc) machines - and Carlo Ubbiali.

Geoff Duke aroused further passions when he betrayed Norton and switched to its greatest rival, Gilera in 1953. The englishman then won three consecutive 500 cc Championships on the sophisticated four-cylinder Gilera with twin overhead camsgafts, thus consummating his treason.

Phil Read

Phil ReadPhil Read

Famously known in racing circles as 'The Earl of Speed', Phil Read was the first rider to achieve the triple honor of winning the 125, 250 and 500cc categories. In all, the Brit wook seven world titles, but for some racing fans he will always be best remembered as one of the original rebels of motorsport.

Born in Luton, England in 1939, this smiling and elegant rider who was a lover of luxury (he went to the tracks with his white Rolls) practically closed the glorious MV world championship cycle. MV called him in 1972, after he had already won five world titles with Yamaha, not only because of his class and experience, but also owing to his disposition. He was combative and meticulous, and impatient of secondary roles.

The 1968 season would go down in history as one of the truly great GP battles. While Giacomo Agostini cleaned up in the larger capacities, Read and Ivy fought for every inch of tarmac in all the lightweight events. By the closing races, Read was set to take the 125cc title while Ivy was on course for the 250cc crown. However, Yamaha were concerned that the fierce struggle between the two riders might stop the team from winning the 250cc title again. As a result, the company decided to make an executive decision: Read would take the 125cc title and would support Ivy in his quest for the 250cc crown. However, after his disappointments of the year before, the more experienced rider decided to disobey his team's orders and took the 250cc title as well. Ivy had to settle for 2nd in both categories and was understandebly furious.

It was precisely this aspect that made him an interesting stimulus for Agostini, who was anything but in disarmament, but who was too fearful of the Japanese offensive.

Read raced in 1972 with the 350, getting good results, and in 1973 with the 500 where, with full leeway, he was able to capture the title with ?Ago? coming in only third. He was left MV?s only leading man in 1974 and confined himself to just the top class, winning the title again without much difficulty. That was the last world trophy for the Cascina Costa manufacturer.

He retired from the World Championship at the age of 37 after 16 years at the top.

Barry Sheene

Barry SheeneBarry Sheene 1969

Date of Birth - September 11th 1950

Introduction

Sheen took after his ex-racer Dad, Frank, who also ran a succesful tuning business. Sheene's debut was on a 125 cc Bultlaco at Brands in 1968, although he crashed out after suffering from a seized engine. As a result of his father's links with the Bultaco factory, he was fortunate enough to get a works ride the following season. Sheene purchased Stuart Graham's ex-factory Suzuki 125 cc twin and almost got the 125 cc world title, failing at the final round in Spain being beaten by Angel Nieto.

In 1972 he switch to Yamaha, without success but his luck changed when he switched to Suzuki as an official rider. However, Sheene suffered an horrific accident at Daytona in March 1975 while riding a 180 mph three-cylinder Suzuki. He made a speedy recovery and raced again 5 weeks later. In 1976 on a works Suzuki he won five out of ten rounds to take the world title. An amazing feat as he did not finish four rounds and runner-up at the other. The following year he retained the title by winning six rounds

In 1978 (2nd) and 1979 (3rd) he experienced some great races with Kenny Roberts, who won the titles both years. Sheene then raced with a Yamaha, sponsored by Akai but found that the privateer bike was no match against the works machinery. At the end of 1981 Yamaha offered Sheene a contract and he won the final round in Sweden and finished 4th in the title. In 1982 he suffered a further serious accident while practicing for the Silverstone British GP, again he recovered but failed to make an impact in the GP's. He officially retired in 1984 and emigrated to Australia

A true legend, 2 times 500 cc World Grand Prix Champion in 1976 and 1977 made famous for winning the GP 500 World title and also for two horrific crashes, but continued to race despite all obstacles. He will be sadly missed by all that were fortunate enough to remember his career.

Eddie Lawson

Eddie Lawson

Date of Birth - March 11th 1958

Introduction

Like Kenny Roberts, an American graduate of the dirt tracks, Eddie Lawson was born in 1958 and from an early age was very much a motorcycle star in the making. He first lept to fame by winning thr 250cc race in 1979 on a Yamaha

His wins in the US Superbike Championship in 1981 and 1982 were commemorated by the much-prized Eddie Lawson Kawasaki Z1100R replica. Coming at such an early stage in his career this is a lasting testament to the impact he made in American domestic racing during the early 1980s.

Suceeding the 'King' Kenny Roberts as the number one rider at Team Marlboro Yamaha was probably the hardest act in racing to follow. But Lawson's great drive and telent saw him through. His records speaks for itself, winning the all-important 500cc world championship in 1984, 1986 and 1988. His forth grand prix crown in 1989 for Rothmans Honda made Lawson the only rider to win the world 500cc title in consecutive seasons on different machines.

He signed for the Italian Cagiva team in 1990 for one of the biggest fees ever seen in bike sport. The Californian's win for the Italian factory at the Hungarian 500cc GP in 1991 was the team's first GP victory in 10 years. Factory boss Claudio Castiglioni was so pleased that he promptly gave Lawson a Ferarri Testarossa.

Eddie Lawson retired from GP motorcycle racing at the end of 1992, to pursue a new career in American Indy Lights' cars.

  • Lawson's first GP race was in 1983, his first pole position was in 1984, his first podium was in 1983 and his first win was in 1984

Freddie Spencer

Freddie Spencer

 

Friendly, enthusiastic and wildly talented on the track, Freddie Spencer rocketed to fame in 1983 when he became the youngest ever 500cc World Champion. On 4th July - the USA's Independance Day, at the age of 20, he became the youngest ever 500cc GP winner at Spa riding the Honda NS500. Two years later he recaptured the title as well as the 250cc championship winning an amazing 14 races. Ironically, he consider becoming a Protestant minister before turning professional as a rider.

Born in 1961, he first raced at the age of five in TT Scramble dirt track events in Dallas, Texas, USA. By the time he was 11, Freddie had already won ten state titles in short and dirt track racing. In 1972 he made his first foray into road racing, riding in the 0-250cc 'Stock' class on a 100cc Yamaha at Green Valley Raceway in Dallas. By 1977 he had won 12 national road racing championships, competing in both AMA and WERA sanctioned events.

He turned professional in 1978, winning every race in the AMA 250cc Grand Prix novice class. The following season he went on to win the 'Expert' division - finishing in 1st place in all but one race. In 1980, he signed with Honda America to race in the AMA Superbike Championship. He also had his first taste of international racing that year and won the opening races of the Trans-Atlantic Match series on a production based Yamaha TZ750, beating World Champion, Kenny Roberts and former title holder Barry Sheene - both of which had full factory support.

In 1980, he also competed in the European GP in Belgium for the official Yamaha team, qualifying in 6th position. The following year, Spencer signed with the main Honda squad to race in selected GP events as a lead-up to his first full World Championship series in 1982.

In 1983 he returned with a vengeance, winning the 500cc GP title by two points winning 6 races and 6 pole positions on the last race of the season. he played a major role in the development of the new four-cylinder NSR500 for Honda in 1984. Unfortunately, due to teething problems he started only five races but still won four and finished fourth in the championship.

In 1985 he became the only rider to win the 250cc and 500cc titles in the same season. In the smaller class he raced in ten events, took pole six times and won seven races. At 500cc level he qualified first nine times, set nine new lap records and won seven out of eleven races. Incredibly, he also won all three major divisions, 250cc, 500cc and SBK at the AMA National at Daytona. He remains the first and only rider to do so.

Unfortunately, the strain of such competition too its toll and Freddie was struck with severe tendonitis in his forearms. The 1986 season was a disaster and after three years of struggling to finish, the ailement finally finished his professional racing career. He competed again in 1993 but it was a fiasco and at the age of 32 he finally retired.

John Surtees

john Surtees

 

The legendary John Surtees occupies a unique place in the history of motor racing. He not only won seven motorcycle world titles between 1956 and 1960, he also switched to four wheels and went on to claim a further crown in the Formula 1 World Championship.

When MV approached him at the end of the 1955 season, young 21-year-old Surtees, who was born into a well-to-do family of motorcycle enthusiasts in Catford, had already won 77 races, mainly with Norton 350s and 500s.

Inventor of a new style that was challenged and that is at the roots of todays riding technique with the body outstretched towards the inside of the curve, he won another six titles in the 350 and 500 classes between 1958 and 1960. Of course they were easy years for MV due to the fact that the leading rivals pulled out. But we have to remember that Big John, as he was called, really ran wild, shattering records previously set on racetracks throughout Europe on a regular basis.

In 1959, Surtees' results were even more spectacular, he triumphed in all the races in both 350cc and 500cc classes. A year later, he won both classes again, prevailing in five out of his six 500cc races. By the end of 1960, Surtees had scored an amazing 38 GP victories on two wheels.

In 1961 he turned to the world of automobile racing, entering the annals of history as the only rider who was ever able to win the world championship title with both motorcycles and cars. Indeed, he won the 1964 F1 title with Ferrari.

Following his long car-racing interlude - first as a driver and then as a builder and engineer - today he has returned to his first love by willingly entering revival races, still fast and a great stylist.

F1 World Champion

Surtees displayed the same passion, skill and professionalism in F1 as he had shown in motorcycle racing. He moved to the Ferarri team in 1963, after first learning the ropes at Lotus and Parnell. It was a smart move, as he was soon rewarded withhis first GP win at the Nurburgring. Just one year later, he was crowned the F1 World Champion. After spending much of 1965 recovering from a major crash, he then left Ferarri midway through 1966. He was apparently fed up with the team's manager, Eugenio Dragoni and the internal politics of the Italians.

In 1969, he became an F1 constructor with his friend, Mike Hailwood. However, the marque never enjoyed the racing success of either of its founders and was closed in 1978. Surtees then went on to become a property and a respected wroter. In 1979, he returned to the Isle of Man to the scene of his first victory and rode an exhibition lap.

He scored more then 350 vitories on both 2 and 4 wheels in a diversity of races. (350cc, 500cc, F2, F5000, F1, CanAm).

David Jefferies

David Jefferies

David Jefferies, the much loved and well respected holder of the Isle of Man TT outright lap record, tragically died on May 29th, 2003, when he crashed at Crosby on the TT circuit during practice. The true cause of the accident will never be known and whether it could have been prevented or not will be always open for debate. But it is beyond doubt that David died doing what he enjoyed most, racing around the TT circuit at a level which is unlikely to be surpassed.
