British Motorcycle Racing Circuits Since 1907

Mick Walker has produced the definitive book on British motorcycle racing circuits. Here, for the first time, is every circuit, from Aberdare Park to Waterbeach, with hundreds both well known and now long-forgotten in between. Fully illustrated by way of colorful program covers, circuit maps and period photographs, this is a must-have for all true racing enthusiasts. It all began in 1907 with the opening of Brooklands, the first purpose-built circuit in Europe and the inaugural Isle of Man TT. Then came venues including Cadwell Park, Crystal Palace and Donington Park. Things took off after World War Two with circuits springing up all over the British Isles. Some held only the single meeting, never to be heard of again, while others such as Brands Hatch, Snetterton, Oulton Parl, Thruxton, Scarborough and Castle Combe went on to establish themselves as major motorsport attractions.
