For the past three years the biggest one-day crowd for a UK sporting event has been at the Brands Hatch round of the World Superbike Championship. Even without the attraction of four-times champion Carl Fogarty, over 100,000 fans came through the gate. The second edition of this fact-packed book, which was first published in 1997, brings right up to date the story of the mega-popular World Superbike series - the riders, machines, politics and results - concluding with the nail-biting climax to the 2002 season that saw Colin Edwards emerge as champion.
This is a high-octane motorcycle racing novel for reluctant teen readers.
Scott has one obsession: to fulfill his late father's dream of racing in the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy Races, the most dangerous and prestigious motorcycle road race in the world. Far from their home in British Columbia and still reeling from a recent tragedy, Scott and his roommates-turned-pit crew have only five days during Practice Week to secure a spot in the TT. Scott must qualify with a fast enough time or he doesn't race. But the pressure of working with a rookie crew on the potentially lethal course puts Scott's safety and his friendships on the line. As race day draws near he and his friends will have to swallow their pride to help Scott achieve his dream.

contributors, is not simply a lavish document of the MotoGP and World Superbike seasons, but a
highly collectable resource that is the cornerstone of every motorcycle racing enthusiasts library.
