“A fantastic book, a masterpiece, one of the best speedway books written in my opinion. A benchmark in speedway biographies.”

Andrew Hale, curator, Penhall Museum

"This book is really well written and researched. I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish, and highly recommend it. A tremendous character who entertained people around the world with his incredible skills on a 500cc speedway bike. A tragic figure, but well loved by all who knew him. You will not be disappointed." 

Scott Autrey, World No. 3, 1978, and former USA team Captain


“I think it’s exceptionally well done, I doff my cap to Brian.  I think it’s very well researched and it’s not just a speedway book, it’s a human interest book, it’s not the conventional fan kind of book at all. It’s very well done."

Dave Lanning - sports TV commentator & journalist
