1911 Isle of Man TT

The 1911 Auto Cycle Union (ACU), who announced the use of the longer mountain course with a four lap (150 mile) Junior race on Friday 30 June and a five lap (189 mile) race for the Senior race on Monday 3 July. In only five years the TT races had grown up and commercialism set in. Grandstands were built by the Douglas Corporation in what had been popular and free vantage points in Douglas to the displeasure of the public.

Preparations for this new challenging course that meant an eight mile (13 km) uphill climb from Ramsey to Brandywell causing the manufacturers to devise methods of modifying their mainly single-gear machines to cope with the mountain not once, but several times. Harold Collier on the single-cylinder Matchless and Percy J. Evans fought for first place in the Junior event. In the Senior event British pride and prestige was dented when the Indians took the first three places. Charlie Collier crossed the finish line second on his Matchless, but was disqualified for refuelling outside the designated area.[1]
