Motorcycling competitions weren’t something that was created a few days ago or a few months ago.

It’s a practice that has been consecrated in time after more than 100 years of its creation after in 1906 the first motorcycling race was held in the competition called Touristic Trophy. Come and know a little more about the history of this interesting competition:

Beginnings

tourist-trophy

The motorcycle competitions originally started in a very interesting race called the Tourist Trophy that will be held in the UK, exactly in the Isle of Man, thus giving birth to the passion and love in Europe for this type of competition. A practice that took 20 years to build after the sale of the first motorcycle in 1894.

Federation Internationale De Motorcyclisme

This federation was born in 1949, after the catastrophe of World War II, and it was established with a lot of determination, so much so that the format that was established then, is still the one in the motorcycling races.

First Interested Brands

Honda was the first major brand interested in motorcycling competitions, after seeing the race that took place in Isle of Man and seeing that it was an event that gained more popularity in Europe.

Internationalization

The TT motorcycling competition had really gained a great reputation in Europe, where it had also achieved even brands from European manufacturers as sponsors of motorcycles.

But in the early 1960’s the internationalization of this competition began, where Japanese teams began to participate with the sponsorship of Honda, who ended up winning the biggest trophy of the competition three years later.

Mechanical And Technological Development

Honda was one of the pioneering brands that started to develop motorcycles with great features and that marked a before and after in the world of competitions. One of the greatest creations was the “Big Ban” engine.

Professional Pilots Who Participated

Exactly 97 is the biggest number of riders who have participated in any motorcycling competition, exactly in Tourist Trophy. And undoubtedly the most outstanding and a legend in the history of motorcycling, was Giancomo Agostini, who was 8 times world champion.

Punctuation System

Originally the system of punctuation in the motorcycling competitions was only granted to the first 5 pilots who qualified in the competition, and who arrived first took 10 points. Something that’s currently changing as the winner gets 25.

Undoubtedly, motorcycling is full of passion, speed and a lot of dedication. It’s a practice that has been preserved over time because of how interesting it’s, and that’s why it has millions of annual followers waiting to see them all.
