Percy Tait

An evocative painting of Percy Tait aboard a racing Triumph in the late 60's. One time Triumph road tester he also raced the bikes; including Slippery Sam, which gained its name when the oil pump spewed Percy's boot with the black stuff at a Bol d'Or 24 hour race. Percy was at the very sharp end of Triumph testing in the sixties especially the powerful triples racking up an estimated million miles around the roads and racetracks of the UK for Triumph.

Painting by Derek Sparkes.
