MIKE HAILWOOD – MIKE THE BIKE-AGAIN
WRITTEN BY TED MACAULEY
THE STORY OF MIKE HAILWOOD’S RETURN TO THE TT
Published in 1980
In June 1978, eleven years after he quit Grand Prix motorcycle racing, Mike Hailwood returned to the Isle of Man TT races, probably the most prestigious and certainly the most demanding road race in the world. On a privately entered V-twin Ducati he won the Formula One race, beating the works Hondas of Phil Read and the late John Williams, and breaking the lap and race records.
This book, by his manager and friend, is the account of his dramatic comeback, from the original wild idea to his final race. More than this, though, it is a study of a remarkable man in a remarkable world, and of the races, the machines and the men who ride them.
