TAKING IT TO THE LIMIT – 20 YEARS OF MAKING MOTORCYCLE MOVIES
WRITTEN BY PETER STARR

Taking it to the Limit is a behind-the-scenes book at a man who chose to build a career out of making films about a subject that consumed  a major portion of his life – motorcycle racing. It is a fascinating insight into a period when there was no cable television and films were actually shot on film and distributed on film to terrestrial television stations. It is also a period of the coming of age of motorcycle racing in America, where the sport became ‘media-conscious’.
