"When Honda Went Dirt Track Racing"
Loomis, California based Motion Pro Inc. is one of the market's leading specialty tool, cables and controls vendors. However, as most readers will know, there is more to founder Chris Carter's life than business success only.
A six-day ISDT gold medal winner, Chris has been a stalwart of "racing on the loose stuff," and after years in the making, "When Honda Went Dirt Track Racing" is a new book by Gerald Foster that details the complete history of Honda's involvement in dirt track racing during the '80s and '90s.
It includes over 500 pages of compelling interviews and first-hand accounts of when Honda entered dirt track racing, leading to its development of the legendary Honda RS750D dirt tracker and triggering the Honda versus Harley rivalry - an iconic chapter in dirt track racing history.
The story is told largely in the form of 60 plus interviews with some (unfortunately not all) of the participants, with a large selection of photographs to accompany the copies of period journalism.
A premium hardcover edition with dust jacket will be limited to just 1,000 printed copies and is now exclusively available for purchase through Motion Pro.
"We're excited to release this exclusive new book! It has taken years of research with many of the racers and individuals who were around during the era. You will not find a more complete story of Honda's history in dirt track racing. Thanks to all my colleagues and contributors who helped tell this story," said Chris Carter, owner of Motion Pro, Inc.
Gerald Foster added: "I would like to thank everyone involved with this book from the bottom of my heart. I'm truly grateful for the personal time and effort each contributor made. This has been a herculean task over a number of years, and I hope you and motorcycle fans all around the globe will enjoy it."
