Franta Juhan Speedway Champion from Jaroslav Juhan’s “Life Without Brakes. The man who brought Porsche to Carrera”

Franta Juhan is the first segmant of a four part series on Jaroslav Juhan’s Book “Life Without Brakes” by Jan Kralik:

Motorcycle Speedway Champion Franta was Jaroslav’s older brother and the first part of his book is dedicated to him’.

There is some great early Speedway footage in the video that I hope makes you smile!

There has been some information added that was not in the book covering Franta Juhan’s son Frankie who raced under the Canadian flag. I was Frankie Juhan’s wrench for a few years trying to honor his Dad’s instructions, “Sonny you look after my boy”

Franta and Frankie Juhan both have been integral part of supporting motorcycle life in Canada and I personally had the pleasurer of working with them both.

Joroslav sent me the draft of the book from Geneva and I just realized that was the last time we talked. I wish I could have asked him more just to hear the wonderful cadence of his voice. Jaroslav spoke multiple languages and I only speak Street English so he was nice enough to share with me in English.

Please give me a thumbs up if you like this and subscribe if you care.
