In this book, Mr. L.R. Higgins gives, from his own personal knowledge, first-hand impressions, not only of the difficulties to be overcome, but also of the skill and dauntless courage of those participating in motorcycle racing of the present day.
From modest beginnings Mr. Higgins has gradually acquired faster machines and has taken part in the great races at Donington, Isle of Man and Belfast as a private owner, carrying out his own repairs and paying his own expenses.
