From the front flap: “Griff Jenkins, although well-known and popular with many thousands of motor cycle road racing fans at the start of the 1963 season, had not, at that time ever won a race. In 1963 he became, under the sponsorship of Charles Mortimer (himself an ex-Brookland’s racer), a force to be reckoned with on the short circuits, their year coming to a climax with a dramatic win in the Senior Manx Grand Prix. Many exciting tussles at Brands Hatch, Mallory Park, Crystal Palace and other short circuits are described, and featured are such stars as Phil Read, Ron Chandler, Roger Hunter and Jenkin’s old friend and rival Joe Dunphy. We Went Racing provides racing fans with a peep behind the scenes and those who contemplate entering the sport either as rider or sponsor will find much in its pages to guide and inform them.” (case) Dust jacket present.
