This is the life story of Kim Newcombe, a little known Kiwi mechanic who in 1973 came second in the 500cc grand prix motorcycle championship. It is an account of how one individual with a determination to back himself could achieve what many would have regarded as the impossible. This book takes the reader on an intimate voyage through the times and places Kim lived and raced, offering a unique insight into the world of grand prix racing in the early seventies and the men and women who travelled with the Continental Circus. It is a time remembered by many, in spite of the dangers, as the golden age.
