Though brilliant nowadays, the English were once number one at the Motorcycle Grand Prix. The Anglo-Italian rivalry of the 1950s was the most beautiful introduction to the World Cup, before any media broadcast. In 70 years, the country marked the history of this game. Currently, only Italy and Spain perform better in the number of titles. We are back with a new top 10! It’s time for classification.
In each version (we have already handled French, Honda Riders, The Japanese, Australians 2) Let’s remember the rules. First, it is important to understand that these top 10 are subjective, however, based on facts and the observation that one can qualify as a goal. So some investments are questionable, so feel free to express yourself in the comments! As usual, everything is read with interest.
The goal of this exercise is to celebrate, to codify, rather than to be categorized. In addition, the main criterion is not the inherent speed, but the size, the mark left by the pilot in the story. A title at 500cc Naturally worth more than a crown 250 cc., But it is conquest and heart.
One last little clarity. These are pilots only Grand Prix motorcycles, Super bikes And road races are not taken into account.

We know you will wait later, but Call Crutchlow Is already making its appearance. Of course, English wins in the Queen categories are very rare 21st century, But there are plenty of handsome men to pass him by. This character certainly marked the 2010 decade by his strong character, and his tongue was associated with the hangbar stroke.
Bill Ivy Was much closer to the tenth place than the foot. “ Small Bill Le, the legendary driver, distinguished himself with the 125cc World Champion title in the 1960s (1967), and many shows in the smaller categories. Myth Yamaha, He crossed the swords with his team Bill Reid, Then we can see in the rankings …
His rockstar face And his precision driving increased his popularity among fans, but the 500cc was missing as part of the final selection. For information, he sadly disappeared Satchenring In case 1969 East German Grand Prix, 26 years old.
