In the ’70s and ’80s, motorcycle manufacturers such as Aprilia, Ducati, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha used Superbike racing to test the technology that would find its way onto street bikes.
Slow Burn, by Bob Guntrip, is the story of how some of the biggest names of ’70s and ’80s motorcycle racing, names like Wayne Gardner, Freddie Spencer, Eddie Lawson, Wayne Rainey and Kevin Schwantz, made their reputations in Superbike racing riding big, unruly Superbikes, power-sliding their way to the top in the TT, the Bol d’Or, the Suzuka 8-Hours and the Daytona 200.
Slow Burn – The growth of Superbikes & Superbike racing 1970 to 1988 is available from Veloce for £25.00 (UK), $35.00 (US) and $46.00 (CAN).
