“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.”

Legend and ten times TT winner Ian Lougher said;
“So many different eras of racing to choose from but Wayne Rainey on short circuits and Steve Hislop, Joey Dunlop and Charlie Williams on the roads.”
