9781845844165 Veloce


The 1960s was a unique era in the history of motorcycle Grand Prix racing, and arguably marked the last period of 'traditional' road racing. 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 these 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.
