Mick Walker has produced the definitive book on British motorcycle racing circuits. Here, for the first time, is every circuit, from Aberdare Park to Waterbeach, with hundreds both well known and now long-forgotten in between. Fully illustrated by way of colorful program covers, circuit maps and period photographs, this is a must-have for all true racing enthusiasts. It all began in 1907 with the opening of Brooklands, the first purpose-built circuit in Europe and the inaugural Isle of Man TT. Then came venues including Cadwell Park, Crystal Palace and Donington Park. Things took off after World War Two with circuits springing up all over the British Isles. Some held only the single meeting, never to be heard of again, while others such as Brands Hatch, Snetterton, Oulton Parl, Thruxton, Scarborough and Castle Combe went on to establish themselves as major motorsport attractions.

After building his first race cars out of southern Louisiana junkyards, Bob Riley quickly established himself as a leading light, if not genius, when it came to race car design. His first major suspension design helped Henry Ford II make good on his vendetta to beat Enzo Ferrari at Le Mans. Riley's first radical Indy car designs with its ingenious center hub mounted suspension resulted in A.J. Foyt's landmark fourth victory at the Indianapolis 500 in 1977. Since then, Riley has continued to be at the heart of the world of motorsports, working with its most famous drivers at the biggest events, including the Daytona 500, where his engineering helped Dale Earnhardt finally win NASCAR's marquee event. Americans love the "genius" angle like everyone else. They love winners. Sports stars are overtaking Hollywood these days in popularity. Racing readers are a small but predictable group and suspect the generation familiar with Bob's exploits at Indy would be keen on a book like this. They're the same age group pumping up the vintage magazine market and the collectible car market.

Feel

Feel is the story of how a small-time boy from humble beginnings in Louisiana rose to the pantheon of greats, to win the 500cc and 250cc GP Championship in the same year – an historic achievement over three decades ago which has never been repeated. Growing up at the time of the assassination of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Freddie judged by feel, not by colour. Blind to prejudice and discrimination, he formed dynamic connections with people and events, but only years later during his racing afterlife could Freddie come to understand the true power of the things he learned. Spencer is an articulate and compassionate guide as he describes the thrill and horror of racing in an era when death was a perennial threat. He recalls in pin-sharp detail the frenetic high-octane racing duels with the ‘King’ Kenny Roberts, but also describes a parallel internal journey as he struggled to make sense of it all. Driven by a search for the personal fulfilment that comes through finding your purpose, Freddie’s story is a universal one. In its message of hope, Feel transcends its genre to offer a story for everyone. Part thriller, part philosophical self-exploration, it is a remarkably insightful account of what it is like to have it all, but wonder why. “For the first time I will talk about the traumas of my childhood, the contrast between the leaf fire burns, the mistrust and discomfort and the peace and purpose I felt when riding my bike. I didn’t tell my parents about something that happened to me. Why? I felt ashamed, but when I rode I felt connected to everything and the pain in my hand and heart would go away. It gave me the feeling of hope”.
