Barry Briggs, MBE, is world famous, not only for his four World Speedway Championships, but also as the most prominent speedway personality in the history of the sport.
In this definitive and exclusive biography ‘Briggo’ tells his own story to Mark Cross.
It is illustrated using Barry’s personal archive, as well as rare TV and film archive material. Nothing is left out, from the early days when the racer was known as the ‘impetuous Kiwi who crashed a lot’, through to his four World titles and six British titles, the big Wembley crash of 1972 right up to recent Golden Greats rides.
We also get a great insight into Briggo’s character and interests, which range from car racing and football to gold mining! Also features contributions from Ivan Mauger and Ove Fundin.
