Spend an unforgettable hour in the company of the legendary Stanley Woods.

BBC’s Nick Harris asked Stanley Woods for a few anecdotes from his racing career. What followed has now become a piece of history itself.


For an hour Stanley recalled the magic moments from a racing career starting in 1921 on a Harley Davidson and finishing in 1939 on Velocette. In between were ten TT victories; twenty nine Grand Prix wins; great battles with riders like Guthrie, Simpson, Bennett, Dodson, Daniels, Frith, Handley and many incidents recalled with much humour by the greatest storyteller in Motorcycling – Stanley Woods.

Stanley Woods (1903 – 28 July 1993) was an Irish motorcycle racer famous for 29 motorcycle Grand Prix wins in the 1920s and 1930s, winning the Isle of Man TT races ten times in his career, plus wins at Assen and elsewhere. He was also a skilled trials rider, competing in the 1940s.
