SPIRIT OF SPEED
SPIRIT OF SPEED - A History of Motorcycle Racing in Australia.
Introduced by former 500cc World Champion Wayne Gardner, riding his prized 1925 Australian made Waratah, 'Spirit of Speed' chronicles Australian motorcycle racing`s classic era, from the beginning of the 20th century to the start of the modern racing era in the mid to late sixties. Each chapter of this exciting story, told through rare film footage and photographs (much of which has been sourced from private collections), is enriched by insightful commentary from acknowledged motorcycle racing historians, Jim Scaysbrook and Rob Saward, and a host of motorcycle racing greats, including Australian champions Maurie Quincey, Bert Flood, Max `Atom` Rathbone, Linsay Urquart, Ray Owen and international speedway star, Neil Street. .
