Australian speedway in the sixties was huge. Tracks would pull up to 30,000 fans into their stands. There was live television coverage and the print media regularly gave the sport front page news exposure.
Drivers such as Stewart, Freeman, Tattersall, Shepherd, Goode, Brock and Bonython possessed charisma and showmanship and were a promoter`s delight. They put their lives on the line week in, week out, with many suffering near-fatal crashes at one time or another during their careers.
Featuring hundreds of classic photographs, many never before published, this book brings speedway`s deadliest decade to life.
