Since the first edition in 1976, MOTOCOURSE has been called “the Bible of motorcycle racing.”
The 2012–2013 edition reinforces that great tradition. Now in its 37th year, continues to go from strength to strength, recording in minute detail the whole of the MotoGP season, including the Moto2 and Moto3 support classes.
