This book tells the incredible rags-to-riches story of one of the world's greatest motorcycle racers. Rising from humble beginnings in 1930s London to win six world titles, Jim Redman is one of the most extraordinary characters in Grand Prix history and a true legend of motorcycle racing. After migrating to South Africa, he started his racing career in the mid-1950s, and in 1964 he won three World Championships in a single day, a feat to this day matched only by Mike Hailwood.

During the mid-1960s, Redman was THE man to beat on track, but a bad crash at the '66 Belgian GP ended his racing career. Following this, he was involved in a number of business ventures -- including helping his two sons with their own successful sports careers, and owning a champion sire racehorse -- until, in 1995, he once again took up a career in racing as a Classic Racer and Demonstration Rider.
