From their early days as production-based racers, to the peak of homologation specials, and the eventual decline as costs sky-rocketed, this site aims to document the rise and fall of an iconic motorcycle racing formula over its formative decade. Even beyond the hype and personality of the World Championship existed a rich variety of regional and national championships in dozens of countries around the world.
