Acclaimed as the premier motor cycle Grand Prix yearbook, this detailed and entertaining book provides race reports and colour photographs that bring alive the drama and atmosphere of the two-wheeled World Championships.
Motocourse 1995-96 is the 20th Issue of the World's Leading MotoGP and Superbike Annual. 1995 was a pivotal year for motor cycle racing. While Michael Doohan sailed to his second successive victory in dominant (if erratic) style and Carl Fogarty did the same thing in the growing Superbike series, a new generation was bubbling up beneath. The 1995 season saw Kevin Schwantz quit prematurely, a legend bringing an era to a close; his replacement Daryl Beattie rise to the occasion, running Doohan close for overall honours; new machines readied for future 500 class battle, from Japan and Europe; Scott Russell switch from Superbikes to GPs, changing the relationship of the two major World Championship series and a new wave of young riders cutting their teeth.
Now in its 29th year, Motocourse continues to go from strength to strength as the fortunes of MotoGP in the United Kingdom flourish. Compiled by leading motorcycle journalist Mike Scott, Motocourse is not simply a lavish document on the MotoGP and Superbike seasons, it is a highly collectible resource that has sold out for each of the past three years. It is widely recognised as the leading annual in this exciting sport. Motocourse is packed with detailed race reports, in-depth analysis, rider profiles and outstanding photography that brings to life the excitement of this massively popular sport.
James Whitham, universally popular and one of motorcycle racing’s most colorful characters, won three British titles and for well over a decade was a world-class rider, competing in World Superbike, World Supersport, Endurance and Grand Prix. This frank, sometimes moving and always riotously funny account of his battles with the best in the sport, with hair-raising crashes, serious injuries and – most gravely of all – with lymphatic cancer, ranks as one of the most riveting reads in motorcycle sport.
