In 2018, Stevie Rial, owner editor of Road Racing News, interviewed 365 road racers, an interview a day with his ‘Ten Question Challenge’ on www.roadracingnews.co.uk. The huge success of the challenge inspired his first book, Who’s Your Hero?
Stevie explains why, 365 racers: “I always like to challenge myself and achieve something specific, so an interview for each day of the year plus something for the history books.
Identifying the interviewees and collating their answers was the hardest job, along with compiling all the information together to put into articles, the challenge had a touch of a fly on the wall documentary feel about it, a window on road racers to a worldwide audience. I really enjoyed chatting to all 365 road racers and highlighting their careers.”
Who’s Your Hero? Is a literacy piece of history, a documented unique quotes anthology put together to show the world the positive side of road racing, as heroes are never forgotten. All citations in the book are special and unique, an essential read for any motorsport aficionado.
“So many different eras of racing to choose from but Wayne Rainey on short circuits and Steve Hislop, Joey Dunlop, Charlie Williams on the roads.” as stated by The legend, Ten times TT winner, Ian Lougher.
