Stan lives life not just to the full, but right on the edge! There are no words to describe someone who has been a world champion sidecar rider - the one just barely in the sidecar, balancing the machine with his body at 150mph! Even more amazingly, by then Stan had already been a professional trumpet player, electrician and sailor as well as a highly respected solo motorcycle racer on the GP circuits. He worked with some of the well known names at both BSA and Norton, raced the first ever Dommie Racer, helped in the successful world land speed record set by Donald Campbell in Bluebird, and then became the man who did so much to introduce NGK spark plugs into the UK. He even designed supermarket trolleys that handled 'like a Ferrari!This is the remarkable story of an amazing man who has managed to fit more fun and adventure into his years than most of us would even dream of. His story is both uplifting and a remarkable insight into the world of sidecar racing and British industry. A book that will fill you with wonder, but one that will also open people's eyes on a now rapidly fading era
