Every year I take two ‘red guides’, one in my office, one always in my backpack travelling around the world. It’s an essential tool for every journalist in the MotoGP™ Media Centre. It is easy, fast and enables instant access to any result or fact. Whenever your memory doesn’t have the answer, you can find it.
No matter how good the human memory this guide is always better.
It doesn't matter which language you understand. What you can find in this book is the collection of numbers, rankings, lap times, years, names, etc. And, history is always the accumulation of those simple facts. In other words, with the FIM MotoGP™ Results Guide, you have a huge and the best database of GP history in your hand.
In the press room at GPs we call this book 'The Bible'. It is a wonderful creation, without which my job would be much, much harder. It's a real treasure trove! I am sure it will continue to be the most used book on my bookshelves, just as it has been for the last 20 years or so! That's how essential it is.
An incredible job. This guide has been and is for me a kind of bible that is always on my side when I have doubts about figures, facts or names.
Whether you want to know the outcome of a long-forgotten battle captured on an evocative old print, how many father and son GP winners there have been or what links Bill Ivy and Fausto Gresini only one book can save you from error or endless frustration, and this is it. An epic effort of racing scholarship and an endless source of interesting facts for those who like to know their Krauser from their Kreidler; what Wisden is for cricket connoisseurs, FIM MotoGP™ Results Guide is for the Grand Prix grandee. Essential.
Every journalist following the Grand Prix races keeps this guide on his table in the press room. It gives you the right answer to any question, so... if you are a race fan, you will enjoy it, because it takes you on a long trip, telling the story of the World Championship through the numbers.
