The Race for Leadership (Motorcycle Gran Prix 1961) Intro by Mike Hailwood for Duncan Fraser Reads

The Race For Leadership. The Introduction by Mike Hailwood. I have this great book on Honda that has seen better days. It has been stuffed in drawers, under beds, in carboard boxes and on numerous of my book shelves in the decades it has been in my possession.. The forward to the book is written by Mike Hailwood who to me is the greatest racer of all time, with Giacomo Agostini being right behind. This look at my book includes some great footage from the Isle of Man courtesy of the BBC. The process I undertake with these video’s that are based on books in my personal bookshelf is as follows: I pull a book from my Bookshelf, mostly at random, open the book to a random page, read a paragraph, make some notes, them pull digital threads I find. I digitize these and create a video. The narration and views are my own and no slight to anyone living or otherwise is intended. I sincerely hope you enjoy them and that I am able to transfer some of magic these books have provided me. My love for motorcycle racing, art and reading I hope is obvious. I have been involved in motorcycling in Canada since the early sixties and it is as glorious a sport today as it was when I was young.
