“The most important record of racing since before I was born.”
2011 World Champion Casey Stoner

Since the first edition in 1976, MOTOCOURSE has been called “the Bible of motorcycle racing.”

The 2012–2013 edition reinforces that great tradition. Now in its 37th year, continues to go from strength to strength, recording in minute detail the whole of the MotoGP season, including the
Moto2 and Moto3 support classes.

MOTOCOURSE also features a round-by round review of the intensely competitive World
Superbike series, where BMW finally found the speed to challenge the might of Aprilia, Ducati,
Honda and Kawasaki, as the these mighty manufacturers battled for supremacy over 14 rounds across the globe.

The book, edited by respected motorcycle journalist Michael Scott and his team of experienced contributors, is not simply a lavish document of the MotoGP and World Superbike seasons, but a highly collectable resource that is the cornerstone of every motorcycle racing enthusiast’s library.

MOTOCOURSE also has unique coverage of American road racing, public-road racing in Ireland and at the classic Isle of Man TT, as well as the exciting British Superbike and traditional sidecar championships
