A Clubman at Brooklands

I just discovered this book by A.C. Perryman. Published by Haynes in 1979, it's a personal account of motorcycle racing in England in the 1930s and is, in the authors words, "a factual year by year account of the striving of a young man of very modest means, to enjoy himself in the very exhilarating pastime of motorcycle racing".
It's not loaded with technical information, or a history of the famous Brooklands banked racetrack, but a nice story of a motorcycle life before WW2.
