From the cover: The Motor Cycling Club was founded in 1901 and the story of the Club vividly reflects the fortunes of British motoring sport during the twentieth century.
In spite of its name it has also been a club for car enthusiasts virtually since its foundation. The club is, perhaps, best known for its long distance trials for cars and motorcycles, of which the two most widely known are the Exeter Trial, and the Lands End Trial.
This book evokes the nostalgia of the days of the open road, of such epic trials as the London-Edinburgh-London run, the memorable Brooklands high-speed trials, and many more.
The story is brought up-to-date with detailed information on the motoring scene and events of today, but also appeals to ordinary drivers, and riders on two, three and four wheels who prefer the MCCs traditional sporting approach. A joy to read for every motoring enthusiast.
