    feeling of life and immediacy This is one book about Triumph motorcycles that I can definitely recommend Martin Jones Nacelle assistant Editor From Tim Britton of Old Bike Mart July 2010 For a factory whose boss was so against racing Triumph seem to be remarkably good at it and all the while using the most mundane of engines Most of the inspiration for racing the unit construction 500cc engines machines seems to have come from the USA where Edward turner s fearsome wrath was diluted a little In his book Claudio Sintich details the start of the programme that would eventually lead to Daytona 200 wins Percy Tait s GP 500 and any number of specials Naturally how the factory did it features highly and if you re in the process of constructing a unit engine even for the road then there will be information here for you Inside this book are details of races the highs the lows of putting a push rod twin into the highest category of racing the characters involved their escapades and well even if you re not into Triumph 500s this book is still an entertaining read Go buy it A wonderful book on the amazing road racing history of the fast but fragile Triumph 500 unit twin From the Daytona successes of the mid 60s to the end of the factory racers including that fantastic second place to Agostini and the mighty MV in 1969 this book details the full history of the Triumph 500 unit twin racers The story is told as much through the hundreds of period photos as in the carefully researched text but wherever possible the words are those of the main protagonists themselves the incomparable racers Percy Tait in the UK and Gary Nixon in the USA the Triumph racing team including Les Williams Jack Shemans and Arthur Jakeman for example and also the privateers such as David Kirby Rob Prior and Dave Degens of Dresda fame amongst many others This is a book full of insight into those golden racing days for the little 500 unit twin But perhaps just as interesting is the insight into the factory team that created this success with so little support from senior management but which would later become the nucleus of the team which built the legend of the triples such as Slippery Sam Complete with a great many photos many never before published this is a real gem Book Launch at Beezumph 2010 some famous names from Triumph s illustrious past came along to sign copies of the Road Racing History of the Triumph 500 Unit Twin Left to Right Fred Swift Claudio Sintich the author Don Emde Les Williams Steve Jolly Arthur Jakeman Bill Fannon Gary Nixon 9 David Kirby Rob Prior The bikes Bike No 1 is Percy Tait s bike lent to us for the event by the National Motorcycle Museum Thanks to the NMM and to Les Williams for bringing the bike up to Anglesey
