Forrest’s Elbow in its original “glory”!
It happened in 1947, when Jack crashed on the first day of practice at the severely downhill and adverse camber left hander leading onto Conrod Straight, known variously as The Elbow, or Devil’s Elbow. His left elbow was badly mashed, but after receiving medical clearance and having the handlebars of his Norton specially bent so he could reach the controls, Jack started in the title races on Easter Saturday. In the meantime, Harry Hinton had dubbed the corner “Forrest’s Elbow”, much to the amusement of everyone (except Jack) in the pits. In the Senior TT, Jack was soon into the lead and pulling away until his Norton expired – a heartbreaking finale to a painful weekend. But at least the name stuck, and ‘The Elbow’ has been Forrest’s Elbow ever since.
