Description

Traces the history and development of the privately built British 250cc ‘specials’ and ‘hybrids’ that sustained this class of Road racing in Britain from 1946 to 1959.

Synopsis

From 1946 up to 1959, the 250cc class in Britain was supported almost entirely by privately built Specials and Hybrids. This book recalls the men and machines involved, and traces their history and development, in what was clearly the most technically innovative class of Road Racing in the 1950s.

Independent Reviews

Review from The Classic Motorcycle, April 2005

'British 250cc Racing Motorcycles 1946 to 1959: an era of ingenious innovation', traces the history and development of the privately-built specials that sustained the road racing class in Britain from 1946 to 1959.

Published by Dorset-based publishers Veloce, the 80-page hardback profiles the machines, their riders and developers, and is beautifully illustrated throughout with almost 100 period, black and white images.
