No rider in the history of road racing has reached greater heights than John Surtees. His record would be unbelievable if it were not fact. He has won the 500 c.c. and 350 c.c. World's Championships three years in succession. He achieved the 'double-double' by winning the Senior and Junior T.T.s in 1958 and again in 1959. John began writing for the Motor Cycle in 1960 and this book includes his series of articles on how to go road racing. He deals with preparing production racing machines and the technique of riding. In an introductory chapter, George Wilson fills in the background of John's early career when he was a young lad taking part in local events with old machines he had licked into shape himself.
