Two Wheel Showdown!: The Full Drama Of The Races Which Decided The World 500Cc Motor Cycle Championship From 1949

  • Barcode: 9781852604561
Of all the motor cycle World Championship categories, the 500cc class represents the summit. Here Christopher Hilton - author of "Grand Prix Showdown!" - recounts, season by season, the excitement and drama of the pivotal races in the championship from its beginning in 1949 right through to the present day. Deeply researched, and with a host of original interviews, the book offers fascinating insights into the riders, their backgrounds, their skills and driving forces. Details off-track and on-track stories of the races that decided the World 500cc Championship, the triumphs and tragedies. Tells of the losers and the winners, and of the one-off champions whose names faded into legend - Masetti, Liberate, Hocking - as well as immortals like Graham, Duke, Surtees, Hailwood, Agostini, Read, and Sheene. Provides statistics of all the showdown races from 1949 to 1993.
