Avon dominates sidecar TT and marks that McIntyre moment

Avon Tyres continued to support sidecar and solo entrants at the Isle of Man TT in 2017, dominating the sidecar race,  with all the podium places taken by Avon-shod outfits.

As well as supporting its racers, the Avon Motorsport team was celebrating 60 years since the first 100mph TT lap was achieved, by the legendary Bob McIntyre, on a four-cylinder Gilera 500 fitted with Avon tyres. A replica of the bike was on show at the TT VIP tent, on Avon Speedmaster and GP rubber.

Avon Tyres raised more than £2000 for the Down’s Syndrome Association from the production and sale of limited-edition T-shirts, designed in celebration of the 60-year anniversary.

The Avon team is now back in Melksham, Wiltshire, for a short break before the Classic TT in August.
