Inhaltsangabe:

In 1961 a production 500cc Velocette Venom Clubman Veeline achieved a world record, twenty-four hours at a speed of 100.05mph.  It was the first motorbike of any size to perform the feat, and to this date no other motorbike of comparable size has equaled or bettered its record.  It was the culmination of almost fifty-five years of technological excellence from the Birmingham factory, a time that had seen the company win both the Junior and Senior TT numerous times, as well as many other races throughout Europe and the UK. Motorcycle historian Mick Walker tells the story of the various Velocette racing bikes and their riders from 1905 to the winding up of the company in 1971.  Velocettes have always had a loyal following and the KTT and Thruxton especially are among the most desirable of classic bikes, especially with a racing pedigree.  Riders like Stanley Wood, Neil Kelly, E.A. Mellors and Bertie Goodman all feature in the book too.  Famous models such as the KTT, MAC, Venom and Thruxton are looked at in depth, while the story of Velocette's racing heritage is told in great detail in Velocette: The Racing Story. 

Über den Autor: Mick Walker's interest in motorcycling goes back to the early 1960s when he started racing while still in the RAF and had wins at most of the major circuits.  He started his own business, Mick Walker Motorcycles in 1969 and was a leading race sponsor during the 1970s. Between 1983-1987 he was editor of Motorcycle Enthusiast and in 1985 his first book was published.  He has now written over 110 titles.  He is a resident of Cambridgeshire, England.
