As for the 1990 TT. The winners were…
Carl Fogarty was a start to finish winner in the F1 race. Steve Hislop smashed his own lap record on the final lap, raising it to 122.63mph – machine troubles meant he finished in ninth place though.
Robert Dunlop dominated the three-lap 125 TT leading from start to finish, and setting a new lap record at 104.09mph.
Dave Leach won the inaugural Supersport 400cc race – after a protest that the top eight machines had all been using illegal parts.
Ian Lougher beat Steve Hislop in the Junior race by 1.8 seconds. Lougher smashed the race and lap records, going round on his last lap at 117.80mph – 38 seconds inside the existing record.
Ulstermen locked out the top four places in the Supersport 600 race – Brian Reid won, with Johnny Rea, Steve Cull and Mark Farmer filling the other places.
Foggy completed his TT double when he led the rain-hit Senior from start to finish.
Dave Saville dominated both Sidecar TTs, winning each by over two minutes. In the first race, he achieved his ambition by becoming the first man to lap the TT circuit on a Formula Two outfit at 100mph – not only did he do this, but he and passenger Nick Roche averaged over 100mph for the three laps.
The poster is in good condition in the main, just shows a little storage wear and tear. HOWEVER, the top third of the right hand edge has been crushed at sometime from nothing to approximately 7mm in from the edge at the corner. Never been pinned or stuck up though.
It will be sent in a NEW postal tube (these cost £0.60 each).
If you would like any further information about it please contact me.
One of a few posters I have listed this week – including a few more official TT. Thank you.
