Charlie Williams Autobiography


Charlie will be launching his autobiography at the Stafford Classic Bike show 27/28 April. It promises to be a great read, and he will be signing copies.

Few riders can boast a TT career like 9-time TT winner Charlie Williams. First coming to the attention of the road racing world in 1971 when he won the Lightweight Manx Grand Prix, Charlie went on to enjoy a successful TT career, notching up 21 podiums.

In addition to his real roads career, Charlie was a successful Endurance racer. Partnered by fellow Cheshire man, Stan Woods, they won the prestigious Barcelona 24 Hour Race, the 8-hour Nurburgring race, 6-hour Zandvoort race, and 1000km race at Brands Hatch, all on factory Honda machines.

Since retiring from racing, Charlie has raced in both the Goodwood Revival and the Classic TT, as well as keeping his interest alive as a TT radio presenter. The Mitsui Yamaha TZ250 on which Charlie enjoyed his last TT win in 1980 will be on display as part of the TT celebration.
