For over twenty years, Stephen Davison has been taking breathtaking photographs that capture the heart and fire of the fastest sport in the world.

In this book he brings together over 140 photographs from his own archive and that of Clifford McLean to tell the extraordinary story of the sport over the last forty years. McLean’s photographs capture magical moments from the sixties and seventies: the championship days of the Ulster Grand Prix; the intense battles between the Armoy Armada, which included the legendary Joey Dunlop, and Dromara Destroyers; and evocative images from his ‘home’ race, the North West 200.

Davison’s photographs take up the story with his own magic moments: the ongoing supremacy of the Dunlops, in particular Robert and Michael Dunlop; the thrill of the Isle of Man TT; the challenge of excitement of the Oliver’s Mount track in Scarborough; and the new golden era of Irish road racing as riders such as John McGuinness and Guy Martin, take on local heroes on Irish soil.

This book is the perfect opportunity for road racing fans to share in the thrill of some of the most wonderful moments in road racing history.
