It’s easy to read, while carefully laid-out in a large coffee-table format with numerous captivating photos and captions.

It captures every historic racing event from the beginnings of Manning’s motorcycle racing history through every attempt to capture and hang onto the coveted World’s Fastest Motorcycle Land Speed Record.
