EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photo print, we are transported back to the thrilling world of motorcycle racing in 1978. The focus is on the legendary Mike Hailwood, a true icon in the sport, as he showcases his remarkable skill and determination during the Formula One TT race. Hailwood's incredible talent was undeniable, but even champions face obstacles along their path to victory. During this particular race, Hailwood encountered an unexpected challenge - breaking several alloy gear levers due to his intense leaning on a dicky left ankle. However, fate intervened when a local aerospace company stepped up and crafted a replacement from durable stainless steel. The impact of this seemingly small modification cannot be overstated. With his new gear lever firmly in place, Hailwood unleashed his full potential on that fateful day. As he roared across the finish line astride his powerful Ducati machine, it became clear that something extraordinary had occurred. This image immortalizes that momentous win for both Hailwood and Ducati enthusiasts worldwide. It serves as a testament not only to Hailwood's unrivaled skill behind the handlebars but also to the invaluable support provided by those around him. As we gaze upon this print today, let us remember Mike Hailwood's triumph at the 1978 Formula One TT race - an unforgettable chapter in motorcycle racing history where resilience met innovation with spectacular results.
