Product description

The 1960s can only be seen as a golden era in the history of motorcycle Grand Prix racing as the Post-war interest in top-level motorcycle racing reached its final climax before changing forever in the two-stroke, short circuit revolution. . 

The decade saw the rise of the Japanese factories that would eventually dominate the sport, and the burgeoning two-stroke technology that would go on to replace the traditional four stroke machines. It was undoubtedly one of the most glorious and exciting decades as far as technological diversity was concerned, with machines that displayed a remarkable variety of technical complexity – at least fifty different makes of machine from over half a dozen countries were involved in the events.

This book covers those years in full – the bikes, the riders, and the races – offering a beautifully illustrated and engrossing account of a remarkable era in Grand Prix racing.
