Mike Hailwood began his road-racing career in 1957, and within a few months the 17-year-old had earned his international racing license. During the winter of 1957-1958, he went to South Africa to hone his racing skills even further and returned to his England home the following Spring as South Africa's national champion. At 19, he became the youngest rider to win an international championship race. Mike won the World 250cc Championship in 1961; four consecutive 500cc World Championships in 1962, and the United States Grand Prix in 1964. He won four more world titles in the 250cc and 350cc classes during the 1966-67 seasons. By 1967, he had won the Isle of Man TT 12 times and had set a course speed record. He began racing cars in 1968 and won the Formula Two world title as well as a podium finish at LeMans. Mike returned to motorcycles in 1978 and won the Formula One category while riding a Ducati at the Isle of Man TT. The following year, he won his 14th TT on a Suzuki. Mike was killed in an automobile accident in March 1981. This portrait was the first of six licensed by his estate.
