Roadracing World MotoGP Editor Mat Oxley is a prolific author, and two of his most popular recent editions include Speed: The One Genuinely Modern Pleasure and the graphic novel version of Stealing Speed. Now they’re available as a packaged set, with attractive pricing.
Speed: The One Genuinely Modern Pleasure covers all sorts of racing, from the Isle of Man TT and Brooklands in the U.K. to murderous high-banked wooden board tracks in the USA, bringing to life a unique era when our ancestors were enthralled by the brave new technology of early motorcycles.
The graphic novel Stealing Speed tells the true story of the biggest case of spying in racing history. Cold, hard cash motivated ill-fated East German racer Ernst Degner to turn over technical secrets and actual hard parts stolen from behind the Iron Curtain from two-stroke pioneer Walter Kaaden and MZ, and the technology transformed Suzuki, Kawasaki, and Yamaha two-strokes from paddock embarrassments to Grand Prix race and title winners. The two books (including shipping to the U.S.A.) sell together for 59 British Pounds, or about $80 U.S. To purchase these and other books by Oxley, go to https://matoxley.bigcartel.com/ .
