Yorkshire has been a hotbed of motorsport since the early years of the last century. In this book, motorsport broadcaster and journalist Larry Carter presents a selection of memorable motorsport events, competitors, venues and personalities in the county from the 1920s onwards. The Sutton Bank Time Trials and the Harewood Hill Climb started in the early years of the last century and the latter is still going today. The 1938 Scott Trial was held on the Yorkshire Moors as war clouds gathered and in 1971, one of the most iconic RAC Rallies ever started at Harrogate. Yorkshire competitors include Formula One World Champion Mike Hawthorn, several generations of the Lampkin family, Wakefield stars Mick Grant and Denis Parkinson on two wheels, as well as Doncaster ace Tony Sugden and Leeds entrepreneur Chris Meek on four wheels. There is also the tragic Carter family linked to the Halifax and Bradford speedway teams. The lost tracks at Carnaby and Rufforth staged massive races into the 1980s, motocross at Hutton Conyers was regularly shown on TV and Oliver's Mount in Scarborough welcomed a roll call of world champions for over half a century from the 1940s. Delving through the archives, Larry Carter has unearthed a fascinating collection of the most memorable motorsport events and achievements over the last 100 years in Yorkshire, which will appeal to all motorsport enthusiasts in the area and beyond.
