Chris Carter at Large : Stories from a Lifetime in Motorcycle Racing Paperback


Few people have been as deeply involved in motorcycle sport as Chris Carter, a larger than life character and raconteur who was for a great number of years a journalist, commentator and broadcaster at the very top level of motorcycle sport.This memoir is a funny, fascinating and unique insider view of professional motorcycling over more than six decades.

From scrambling in the 1960s, to four decades of international road racing - including Daytona and Macau - as well as trials and speedway.

Packed with remarkable stories and amusing anecdotes, as well as interesting reflections and astute observations, it is a light-hearted, highly readable autobiography which lifts the lid on an extraordinary world.

In past times, racing paddocks were open and friendly, and Chris felt part of a big, happy family.

He lived cheek by jowl with the very top riders and shared their triumphs and tragedies; to many, he was a friend and confidante.

Honest, frank and direct, Chris tells things exactly as they were, and provides insights into a fast disappearing world.
