Jimmy Simpson, Ballig Bridge, 1934
Jimmy Simpson leaps over the harsh hump on the Ballig Bridge, which has since been removed. Simpson was the first man to lap at 60mph, 70mph and 80mph and made his first and only TT victory on his thirteenth attempt, describing himself as ‘thirteen times lucky.’
But Ballig’s beauty, with its lush surrounds and natural grandstand - now a forest - belies its danger. It was here where, in the 1999 Senior that Jim Moodie completely shredded his rear tyre, just eight miles into the second lap.
