The World's Leading Grand Prix & Superbike Annual.

Motocourse annuals are more than just pretty picture books, with detailed reports of races and background news that make them a well-respected reference work. Considered to be the 'bible' of motorcycle racing since 1976, the books are packed with stunning pictures from some of the world's best racing photographers. In the earlier editions, the emphasis was on black & white photography, but this moved towards colour over the years.

The first three volumes, from 1976/77 through to 1979/80 are becoming increasingly difficult to find and command high prices in excellent condition.

The Barry Sheen and Kenny Roberts championship editions tend to fetch high prices, especially in the UK, as does the volume covering 1993 when Wayne Rainey suffered his career-ending crash at the Italian Grand Prix in Misano.
