Product Description

Champion motorcyclist and truck racer, television presenter, practical joker or just plain survivor – Steve Parrish has been called them all. Parrish Times tracks his amazing journey over the last four decades, through a rollercoaster ride of emotions in surely the most dangerous and exhilarating sporting arena there is.

In the 1970s Steve was competing for the world motorcycle championship with legendary team mate Barry Sheene on a Suzuki. After retiring in 1986, Steve managed a successful Yamaha factory team to three British Superbike Championship titles and started a truck-racing career, becoming the most successful truck racer ever. He also proved to be a natural commentator, first for BBC radio, then transferring to television with Sky, ITV and Eurosport.

Against this backdrop are Steve’s notorious pranks: posing as a medical doctor to allow John Hopkins to fly from Japan to the Australian GP; impersonating Barry Sheene in a qualifying session; owning a fire engine, a hearse, and an ambulance – parking it on double yellow lines with the doors open in visits to his local bank.

It’s a funny, hell-raising account of life – and death – in the fast lane that will keep readers enthralled to the end. Barry Sheene’s final words to his best friend sum it up: ‘Neither of us will die wondering.’

    Highly enjoyable read from start to finish. The stories are absolutely hilarious and I was literally crying with laughter at some of them. Steve just did everything his way and I take my hat off to him for that. The tales of life on the road with Barry Sheene are hilarious. You only get one life and as Steve says, he won’t die wondering. Brilliant.
