Arthur Knowles was fortunate to be born when & where he was. He was a young man when the world speed records on both land and water were being contested, 'at times' on an almost weekly basis! Brooklands was at its busiest and flat Sandy beaches provided a cheap and cheerful alternative to track & road racing for both cars & motorcycles. Regular attendance at these venues for a confident young chap would find himself quickly aquainted with the 'Set'. In those happy days of amatuer motor sport, you could pick up a lot of knowledge, contacts and work (as long as you did not expect payment) in anything except beer. It was also a cheap way to get involved competitively, as the racers often change hands for proverbial 'peanuts' to those in the know. Arthur Knowles tells of his Forty Years in this environment. 163 pages The book is in very good condition in a very good jacket.
