How to Build Motorcycle-engined Racing Cars
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Astoundingly comprehensive, well-written - with nicely inserted humour - it might be a soft-back, but this book is well worth 25 smackers. Even if the last thing you want to do is build a bike-engined racer. Informative and educational - and fun to read. Who cares if it's a 25 quid paperback? Read it; you won't be disappointed. - British Racing News -
There is an extensive amount of pictures and diagrams, which does help as there is a lot to read and it breaks up the text well. It describes the subjects that will affect this kind of build in good detail and would be very helpful for people looking into this area. - Track & Race Cars magazine -
... delivers just what it says on the cover by way of very sound, hard-worn practical advice. All those involved in race engine design and development would do well to familiarise themselves with its potential through this excellent book, which is absolutely crammed full of knowledgeable and splendidly well communicated first hand advice. You never know, you might even start your own project, just for the fun of it! - Race Engine Technology -
... it will frequently be taken from the bookcase for reference. Worth having. - The Motor Cycling Club -
An engineer is someone who washes his hands before going to the toilet! - an old saying perhaps, but just one example of Pashley's immensely readable style that provides an easy grasp of a complex subject. This, together with literally hundreds of diagrams and full colour illustrations, make this book an absolute 'must read' for anyone contemplating such a project. - Speedscene -
Reading the book is like talking to a knowledgeable mate down the pub, helping you to avoid the pitfalls and giving you the benefit of the authors experience. What is also great are the diagrams in the book, helping to simplify what can be complex topics such as suspension. - --teamdan.com
refreshingly frank ... From engines, transmission, chassis and cooling to fasteners and finishes, it's concise, clear and comprehensive. --Auto Express

Initially trained as a toolmaker, he subsequently worked on engine development in the aircraft industry before becoming a project engineer in the nuclear power industry.
