Simon Thrussell, Triumph’s Head of Customer Experience said: “We’re very proud to be working together for the first time with the British Motor Museum to showcase the iconic Daytona story from the very start. From the the very first Daytona motorcycle that took Buddy Elmore to victory in the 1966 Daytona 200, all the way through to the first-ever Official Moto2™ Dorna Sports licenced motorcycle and the Daytona Moto2™ 765 Limited Edition – this historic exhibit includes a collection of stunning motorcycles for visitors to see and enjoy.”

Stephen Laing, British Motor Museum’s Head of Collections added: “A special display involving two-wheeled rather than four-wheeled machines is a new departure for the British Motor Museum. Triumph is one of the most enduring motorcycle nameplates and, Daytona, one of the most evocative motorsport locations. We’re delighted to be collaborating with Triumph Motorcycles to showcase some of its amazing bikes and their exciting stories.”
