Freddie Dixon – The Man with a Heart of a Lion

Author: David Mason
Publisher: Haynes Publishing Group

Freddie Dixon was a true all-rounder of the pre-war era of motor sport, and is the only man to have won Isle of Man TT races on two, three and four wheels. Dixon was equally competitive off-track, and his legendary penchant for wild celebrations, regardless of success or failure, fuelled his reputation as a hard-working, hard-drinking racer. An innovative thinker, he had an unsurpassed ability to see engineering problems in their simplest terms, which played a significant part in his success. Here is the story of a true British character, a man who left an indelible mark on the record books, and on all those who met him or raced against him.
