Stange title for this blog .. surely we all must know by now, but I have noticed in my site stats, the search engine query list keeps showing ‘What year did Steve McQueen Race the ISDT’ is a common search and is bringing a lot of visitors to the site and the Steve McQueen pages are getting a lot of action so I decided to google the search phrase to see what’s up?
it was then I discovered this year Barbour are running a promotion on the back of it’s Steve McQueen Limited Edition collection to win a trip to this years ISDE in Sardinia, this year is the 100th anniversary of the first ISDT. So not to let anyone else miss the chance to have a go at this wonderful opportunity to experience and ISDE wearing one of Barbour’s iconic ‘International’ motorcycle off road jackets here is the competition. If you don’t win and want to know a bit more about the ISDE and ISDT why not catch up with the Anniversary event being held to celebrate the centenary of the holding of the first ISDT in Carlisle in the English Lake District in August 2013
In September 1964, Hollywood actor Steve McQueen started with his friend and stuntman Bud Ekins, Ekin’s brother Dave, John Steen and Cliff Coleman at the ‘International Six Days Trail’ (ISDT) in Erfurt, Eastern Germany. Although the three were eliminated on the third day, the participation was the main attraction: For the first time, a US team went racing at the ISDT, and for the first time behind the iron curtain.
To promote the 2013 McQueen collection, Barbour are going back to the event that Steve McQueen himself raced in 49 years earlier, the FIM ISDE in Sardinia…
