    Product description

    Bill's own story covers the golden years of road racing, taking in the Continental Grands Prix, the TT and a winter season in Australia. By the time he retired in 1958, he had two World Championships and two TT wins to his name, as well as numerous Grand Prix victories. Bill raced no less than 29 different road racing machines - not to mention nine works trials bikes - for some of the biggest teams of the day; Royal Enfield, Velocette, AJS, Matchless, NSU, MV Agusta, Benelli and Moto Guzzi.

    Written in his own words, this book tells it the way it was, what happened behind the scenes at the various factories and races, the highs and the lows of racing as part of the glamorous continental circus, and the camaraderie that existed between many of the riders. Bill paints a vivid picture of what it was like to race with the great names of the period; Duke, Dale, Anderson, Sandford, Surtees, Haas, Ubbiali and Lorenzetti and recounts the tales with great affection and humour. It could only have been written by someone who was there, and few had the opportunities that Bill Lomas enjoyed during that time.

    Full of in-depth detail and evocative photography (including some great close-ups of the machines of the era). Truly a wonderful trip down memory lane from those golden years of motorcycle racing.

    Hardback. 304 pages.
