Thanks to Ray Kilminster for this picture of Bob McIntyre on a 500cc Gilera at the IoM TT in the 1950′s.

And thanks to Paul for the following information:

This was in 1957 when he not only became the first rider to lap at over 100 mph (senior) but he also won both Senior 500 and Junior 350 events both on Gilera 4s. 1957 was the only year that Bob rode Gilera bikes at the TT, other years were on different bikes.
All the best,
Paul

    I was only 7 when I saw Bob McIntyre do the first 100 mph lap in the 1957 TT but I still remember, vividly, the sight of him at full power storming up Hillberry. A marvellous rider on a superb machine.
