The eight year labour of love has resulted in a large-format book that is nearly 500 pages and contains many previously unpublished photographs...

Don Cox was inspired by his old mate and fellow journo Jamie McIlwraith to include as many riders of the period as possible. The book fills a large gap in Australians’ knowledge of the era and has some wonderful photos, many of Manx Nortons.

You can buy Circus Life direct from the publisher for $A99 and $12 postage in Australia. Go to The price in the UK is £60 and £10 postage.
