* Signed* Michael Rutter - The Life of a Racer Volume 2: Flesh & Blood
In his follow-up to his own autobiography, Michael Rutter has changed his focus, and now reflects on his father’s life – the victories, defeats, scrapes with the law and practical jokes. He also looks at his father’s close brushes with death, including the horrific, career-ending crash of 1985, and its aftermath.
Tony Rutter (1942-2020) is best known for his four world TT-F2 championship wins, seven Isle of Man TT wins, nine North West 200 wins, and two British Championship titles during his twenty-two-year career – but the man himself has remained something of an enigma to everyone including his own son Michael, who himself went on to have a hugely successful career and keep the Rutter name alive in the world of motorcycle racing to the present day.
Through his own memories, as well as those of longstanding teammates and friends, Michael pieces together his father’s values, what mattered to him the most, his odd – sometimes maddening – traits. What unfolds is a profile of the man behind the incredible talent and singular focus of an elite racer.
With a foreword by Carl Fogarty MBE, this is the first-ever book about one of the finest racers in a great generation of racers, by those who knew and loved him the most.
