In 1999, the book “Tourist Trophy – the Prohibited Race” became a cult publication for lovers of the oldest, most adored, feared and dangerous motorcycle race in the world, so much so that it had to be reprinted in 2004. Now, author Mario Donnini returns to the subject during the centenary year of this race over the Isle of Man mountain circuit, due to take place in 2011. Now is the moment of the new book “Tourist Trophy: a Real Case of Living or Dying”, which goes much further, delving like never before into this Temple of Risk, providing explanations, previously unpublished anecdotes, secrets, analyses and backstage intrigues about the legendary and fearsome race, including interviews with stars like McGuiness, Hutchinson, Lougher and Anstey. All accompanied by first hand exciting accounts by the author who for the last 17 years has lived for those two weeks of the year on the IoM, in close contact with the race, the champions and the legends of this fascinating and daunting road race.
