There was only one fitting way to celebrate the Centenary of the Isle of Man TT - the biggest party the festival has ever seen! For nine nights in 2007, the roar of incredible machines and thousands of fans filled the air as TT on the Prom brought the most thrilling entertainment on wheels to Douglas Promenade.

Then there’s the extraordinary exploits of the world’s top stunt driver Russ Swift, performing unbelievable manoeuvres in a selection of high-performance cars. Crowd pleaser Steve Colley shows exactly why he’s the number one extreme trials rider, including setting a new World Record, and the Honda Bolddog Lings Freestyle MX team thrill the fans with huge leaps - including a 360 degree back flip! Plus, the Pyromaniac unleashes the awesome power of the jet-powered quad, with its ear-splitting roar and bright-burning flames. It wasn’t all high octane - the Free Runners, stars of TV and film, may have been on foot, but their brave leaps were still spectacular. And then there’s the always colourful Purple Helmets! Centennial TT on the Prom came to a stunning end with a star-studded gathering of TT legends and iconic machinery. This was an extraordinary chance to see vintage race-winning machines close-up, and hear their engines roar back into life, as well as hearing from the great names from TT history, including Mick Grant, Phil Read and Michelle Duff in conversation with the late Geoff Cannell. This DVD contains highlights from this very special conclusion to what proved a very special TT on the Prom.

MotoGP reached new heights in 2004. In an epic season, Valentino Rossi won back-to-back titles on different makes of motorcycle, after taking on the role of underdog on the previously under-achieving Yamaha M1. The book chronicles in detail all 16 races, from Rossi’s emotional win in South Africa to his coronation in Valencia. Each rider’s performance over the year is analysed, and there is a unique Riders’ Rider of the Year feature, plus an analysis of how the leading bikes evolved over the season.
Included are over 120 motorcycles, clearly organized A-Z within each category (touring bikes, trail bikes etc.), a special feature on recent advances in motorcycle engineering, profiles of the year’s leading designers, a full technical glossary and a list of all the major bike shows in the year ahead.
Since its first release in 2008, the official book of the Superbike World Championship has been an indispensible resource for all fans of the championship reserved for production derived bikes, the championship for bikes you can buy from your local dealer. Like every year, this book opens with a chapter devoted to the winner of the World Championship title. Plenty of space has been devoted to reports on the 12 scheduled races of the 2016 season, and to the bikes and riders that constitute the fundamental pieces in the complex SBK jigsaw. The “strong suit” of the official book, one of the parts that will delight fans of the series, is without doubt the one dealing with the engineering of these authentic jewels, described in the most minute detail - thanks to the contributions of specialists working for the various teams - and illustrated with numerous photos revealing all the secrets of the championship’s leading players. The chapters on the “other world championships”, Supersport and Superstock 1000 and 600 complete a book that should be on the shelves of every true fan.
