The \’Morecambe Missile\’ took his first victory around the TT Mountain course in 1999 and in the final race of 2013, a nail-biting Senior TT showdown, he smashed another barrier, securing his 20th win.To mark that incredible achievement, and the 15th anniversary of his first win, we have produced a stunning stamp sheet, new 50p coin and limited edition collection which is essential for all collectors, as well as every TT fan.
