Classic TT 2015
The 2015 Isle of Man Classic TT presented by Bennetts saw
records tumble amidst sunshine, big crowds and brilliant entertainment.
The paddock was swinging to the sound of the Bluejay’s rock
‘n’ roll beat as classic bikes paraded and the ton up boys strutted their stuff
– the ‘50s were back in town as the Isle of Man paid tribute to Norton and the
great Geoff Duke.
Fans were treated to the sight of the sole surviving 1950
works ‘Featherbed’ Norton back on the Mountain Course, in the hands of 2015 TT
Superbike winner Bruce Anstey dressed in appropriate leathers and helmet to
represent Geoff’s winning Senior TT ride.
There was even more excitement in store as nineteen original
rotary-engined Nortons took to the circuit to honour the part played by Steve
Hislop, Robert Dunlop, Trevor Nation and Steve Spray in helping the brand stay
in the limelight through the ‘80s and ‘90s – culminating Hizzy’s sensational
Senior win in 1992.
It wasn’t just about parades though, there was also the
serious business of three big races: 500cc Senior Classic, 350cc Junior classic
and the headlining Formula 1 TT Classic. Records were smashed in all three
races and Bruce Anstey had additional reason to smile as he screamed round the
course at 126mph+ to set a new Classic TT absolute record – not bad for a
twenty year old YZR500!
This official Review of the events brings together the best
of the action with the authentic atmosphere of classic motorcycle racing which can
only be found on the Isle of Man’s near legendary Mountain.
