1. Indian TT – 1911
Not only was 1911 the first year the Isle of Man TT would be run over the now famous Mountain Course, it was also the first time a foreign manufacturer would win the Senior TT race. To better cope with the demands of five laps of the 37.5-mile course, Indian built three special models featuring chain drive and a two-speed gearbox. Oliver Godfrey won the Senior TT in a time of 3 hours, 56 minutes and 10 seconds at an average speed of 47.63 mph. Charles Franklin and Arthur Moorhouse, riding the other two Indian specials, placed second and third, respectively, for a clean sweep of the race. It was the only time Indian would win the Isle of Man TT.
