1978 DUCATI 900ss ex JOHN OLDFIELD

One machine

One rider,

One circuit..

There is nothing on Earth like the Isle of Man TT races. No other motorcycle race is held on such a challenging track, as the 37-mile Mountain Course with its seemingly never-ending series of bends, bumps, jumps, stone walls, manhole covers and telegraph poles. The skill, bravery and concentration levels required are immense, with speeds approaching 200mph, and, while difficult to learn and even harder to come first, the rewards for winning on the world famous course are like no other.
