The Ards TT

£80.00£85.00

The selling of this particular item is tough as it represents a moment in my early journalistic career.
It was November 1954 and during my National Service in the RAF I was posted to Belfast. In my time off I became friendly with the aged Robert McCann who was in his ’80s but still producing on his Irish Motoring magazine.

I wrote a number of articles for him purely to gain more experience and when I told him that in a few weeks time I would be returning to the UK after my two years were completed, he thanked me profusely and handed me a brown envelope with around 32 original photographs taken at various RAC Tourist Trophy Races held on the old Ards circuit. I have treasured these and have occasionally used one or two in articles.

I later bought the softcover booklet published by the Ulster Vintage Car Club covering photographs, full race entry lists, reports and results of all the TT races held on the circuit from 1929-1936. I also have the actual programme – with the cover missing – of the 1932 race.
Reluctantly I am offering the lot for sale as a unique archive of a great series of races.
