    Background: Riding a Yamaha 350, 31-year-old Briton Tony Rutter, won the International Junior T.T. Motor Cycle Race on the Isle of Man, on Monday (4 June). Rutter took the chequered flag a convincing one minute ahead of fellow Briton, John Williams, also riding a Yamaha. Irishman Ken Huggett, riding a Dugdale Yamaha, finished third.

    In the absence of Italian rider Giacomo Agostini, five-times winner of the event, the outcome of the race was wide open. For the first time in years local bookmakers were prepared to take bets on the race.

    Leader for the first lap was Mick Grant. But he was forced to pull out, owing to a faulty clutch. Rutter took over the lead at that point, and never looked like losing. He completed the 188 mile (303 kilometres) course in one hour, 50 minutes, 58.8 seconds, at an average speed of 101.99 miles (164 kilometres) an hour. He also completed the ???astest single lap time, governing the 37 mile (59 kilometre) circuit in 21 minutes, 43.2 seconds, at an average speed of 104.22 miles (167.6 kilometres) an hour.
