Description

Twenty years after the World Superbike Championship was started at England's Donington Park, the series has produced some of the most thrilling racing and iconic champions in the world of motorcycle racing. The genius touch was to feature bikes that are sold in high street showrooms, thus attracting a passionate following among ordinary motorcyclists. The third edition of this fact-packed and gloriously illustrated book brings the story right up to date - all the riders, machines, politics and results.
