Book Description

1 July 2002
Born and raised in California, Shawn and Kelly Moran spent the majority of their highly successful speedway careers racing in the United Kingdom. Shawn's clubs included Hull, Sheffield (where he spent a total of ten years in two spells) and Belle Vue (five years). Kelly rode for Hull, Birmingham, Eastbourne, Sheffield Belle Vue and Swindon.
 
The brothers began riding motorcycles as young boys in the desers around Los Angeles, and found themselves rubbing shoulders with Hollywood legends like Steve McQueen. As part of the mini-bikes craze of the 1970s, the Morans learned their skills and Jeff Ward, before choosing a career in speedway racing.

They began their British careers at Hull, where they went, the brothers were two of the most colourful characters in speedway during the 1980s. They won the World Team Cup twice and were prominent in the World Championship event for many yeats. They were amng the first wave of Americans to race in Britain, and were instrumental in setting the standards for their fellow countrymen to follow.
 
Written by Brian Burford, who has been a speedway supporter for over twenty years, this book includes a foreword by 1996 World Champion Bully Hamill, and is essential reading for anyone with an interest in Speedway.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Story of America's wild boys 14 Sep 2003
I'm not a regular speedway supporter but I well remember Kelly and Shawn Moran. They were real characters and I can recall Kelly being one of the few riders to make the tabloids. This book has some excellent anectdotes from the brothers themselves and the riders, promoters and rivals who all recall their memories of the brothers. I was particularly fascinated with Shawn's fued with Don Godden, and also how he lost his runners-up spot in the World Championship. And Kelly's adventures in South Africa, and the off-track hotel accident in Poland is well documented. It has some fascinating photos from their early days, and is very well written and entertaining.

The Moran brothers were at Hull in the seventies and were great characters. We always thought that they needed a good manager to look after the business side of life, but reading the book, they probably would not have been as entertaining if they had to behave. Kelly had a great natural talent
