    Background: Malcolm Uphill of Caerphilly, Wales won the Isle of Man TT Race for Production Machines yesterday by the narrow margin of 1.6 seconds. Second was Peter Williams of Andover, England.

    The race developed into a great battle between Uphill and Williams. Uphill, riding a 750 cc Triumph motorcycle was pressed hard by Williams on a Norton.

    The race was staged over five laps, and the 188 mile (303 kilometres) event ended with the closest finish for 20 years.

    SYNOPSIS: The Isle of Man TT Race for Production Machines produced the most exciting finish seen on the Island for 20 years. A strong line-up of motorcycle racing experts promised a thrilling, high speed event and the large crowd were not disappointed.

    The large field of riders got away well using a Le Mans type start.

    Tom Armstrong, riding a Norton Commando. It was too early in the five lap-188 mile (303 kilometres) race at this stage for any real duels to have begun, although Malcolm Uphill, the favourite, riding a 750 cc Triumph was being pressed by Peter Williams on a Norton.

    Number 63, Danny Shimmin on a Suzuki being lapped by Malcolm Uphill.

    Frank Whiteway-Suzuki T500 number (41) closely followed by Gordon Pantall-Triumph Daytona (number 54). But flashing across the winning line in a thrilling victory was Malcolm Uphill. He'd snatched the win from peter Williams by the narrow margin of 1.6 seconds.
