1957 Senior TT

Course name: Mountain (post 1914)

Course length: 302 miles (8 laps)

Description: 1957 was the Golden Jubilee of the TT and Bob McIntyre ensured his name would forever remain in the record books, as he became the first man to lap the Mountain Course at over 100mph. He rose to the occasion in fine style and led the gruelling 8-lap Senior race from start to finish to claim a record win, just four days after he had achieved a similar feat in the Junior race.
