An Age of Superheroes

GP Racing's Golden Age with Schwantz, Rainey, Doohan, Lawson & Gardner

By: Mat Oxley - Foreword: Valentino Rossi

Traction control? Engine management? Acres of run-off? You've got to be joking: motorcycle racing's Age of Superheroes, 1988-93, was the nadir of two-stroke Grand Prix racing, when macho colonials slugged it out on evil two-strokes capable of 200mph. Even Valentino Rossi acknowledges this period as a special moment in motorcycle racing history, for he grew up watching Kevin Schwantz, Wayne Rainey, Eddie Lawson, Mick Doohan and Wayne Gardner on TV as they bumped fairings and burned rubber around ultra-fast, lethal racetracks. This lavish book is the first to cover this era of frighteningly intense racing.
