Synopsis

Published to great acclaim in 2006, this magnificent illustrated biography of Barry Sheene is now available in paperback. One of history's great motorcycle racers, Sheene proved his skill with 19 Grand Prix wins and two World Championships. He added ambition, intelligence and vision to his Cockney charm - and it made him formidable. Starring in high-profile ad campaigns and in London's fast social set, he played the media to charm the public, and his personal courage in facing serious injury made them love him more. Even after retirement Sheene remained famous - he was racing's first two-wheel superstar.
