5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Book for all Sidecar lovers
This is a brilliant book for anyone who loves the IOM TT, or Sidecars in general. Superbly written, it truly captures the endurance and dedication needed in this sport. It also lays to rest so many of those rumours that have always unfairly followed Moly. A book that had been long overdue and certainly didn't disappoint.

This review is from: The Racer's Edge: Memories of an Isle of Man TT Legend (Hardcover)
I purchased this book because I had developed an interest in this sport and wanted a 'look' behind the scenes.
Mr. Molyneux's account provided this admirably, and I would recommend it to like-minded enthuiasts.

Superb account of a man who has done so much for the TT.He not only builds and races his own outfits,but he also builds so many for other competitors.
A really interesting and a good account of a true champion.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read-page-turner for every sidecar enthousiast, 6 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Racer's Edge: Memories of an Isle of Man TT Legend (Hardcover)
Racing to the top is always hard to get. Especially in sidecars, and especially on the Isle of Man. Dave Molyneux tells his life and sidecar story as from he was a youngster towards breaking every IOM record. Without revealing the clues, it was a journey with ups and downs, in racing terms and in social life, without any compromises. Dave also reveals some interesting and technical sidecar ideas and solutions, which proved to be valuable, to say the least. Took me 2 days to finish reading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good read, 19 Jan 2012
This review is from: The Racer's Edge: Memories of an Isle of Man TT Legend (Hardcover)
Sidecar racing has always been the least reported class in the motorcycle press and books about the subject are few & far between. Dave gives a great insight into the cost of running a competitive sidecar team and the constant struggle he has had to find sponsors. His forthright views of the sport and rivals are refreshing and I would recommend this book to all road racing fans, I also think it would be of interest to fans of all motorcycle sport.
