Post Office commemorates Steve Hislop

Steve Hislop

Stamps to mark anniversary of record-breaking Formula One

Thirty years after he broke the 120mh barrier around the world famous Mountain Course, Steve Hislop's record-breaking Formula One triumph is being remembered.

Many considered the speed impossible when the 11-time TT winner achieved it in 1989.

A landmark anniversary stamp and coin collectors' pack is now on sale to commemorate Hizzy's blistering lap record - the first of three victories he enjoyed on the Isle of Man that year.

The collectables are on sale from Isle of Man Post Office but there are only 1,000 available.
