MotoGP: The Illustrated History by Michael Scott

The daring exploits of motorcycle race legends Valentino Rossi, Barry Sheene, Casey Stoner and John Surtees are all gloriously celebrated in MotoGP: The Illustrated History.

Packed with more than 150 stunning photographs, this authoritative and long-overdue illustrated history celebrates high performance motorbike racing since the start of the world championship in 1949.

Each racing decade is dissected and discussed, as are the big incidents, top personalities and technological innovations.
