* This is a used book in very good condition
Considering it's size, Ducati has achieved amazing racing success. In 1958 Ducati nearly beat the world with its desmodromic racers, and in 1972 won the Imola 200. Significant victories at Daytona and the Isle of Man, and four World TT2 Championships led to Ducati's dominance of the World Superbike Championship. Here is the story of Ducati's racing motorcycles from the Marianna to the latest 998, including many machines previously forgotten. Research and interviews with racers and mechanics around the world have unearthed a wealth of new material.
Also featured are the personalities behind Ducati's racing program - engineers, technicians and riders. With many previously unpublished photographs, acclaimed Ducati historian Ian Falloon documents the complete racing story of this legendary Italian marque.
