And it launched him from the obscurity of his small-town New Zealand origins to worldwide acclaim, which continues to enjoy.Here, renowned speedway historian and journalist John Chaplin reveals, through the words of opponents, friends, enemies, business associated, fans, rivals and his own family, the real Ivan Mauger...the man behind the myth.

It started on a cold, frosty morning in 1951 in Christchurch, New Zealand, with a seventeen-year-old-boy, a crate of sheeps' kidneys and a dream. The boss of the city's Belfast meatworks, had arrived an hour early to set up for the day, when he noticed one of his workers packing up a crate on the countertop. The young lad was battling to move it so the boss went over to help. When asked what time he'd started, the boy replied 'Five o'clock this morning'. Stunned, and amused, the boss told him he'd be earning a good bonus at the end of the week, and wondered aloud what he'd spend it on. But the boy knew, and immediately replied, 'I'm going to race speedway in England.' And he did. That boy was Barry Briggs, and it was just the start of his great adventure. Little did he know he was soon to become the legendary speedway racer more commonly known as Briggo, and later as Barry Briggs MBE. From dangerous encounters in the jungles of Liberia to teaching Steve McQueen to slide a speedway bike, Briggo's incredible story is one of strength, determination and a life lived firmly in the fast lane.

Gus Honeybun... Your Boys Took One Hell of a Beating tells the story of a lifetime aboard the emotional roller-coaster of inconsistency which is Exeter City - one of English football's most unfashionable and unsuccessful clubs. Like many football fans, author Simon Carter's football supporting life is a long way from the glitz and glamour of the Premier League; instead its high points are memorable trips to Halifax, Crewe, Carlisle and Maidstone. With the self-deprecation you'd expect from an Exeter City fan, on his travels with the Grecians he meets Brad Pitt and Freddie Starr; writes about Uri Geller in the local newspaper... with miserable consequences; and wins a tenner for scoring a goal in front of 3,000 fans - albeit past a small girl dressed in a large turkey costume! Gus Honeybun... Your Boys Took One Hell of a Beating provides the perfect antidote to those many books which chart tales of glory and success, and gives a light-hearted and real-life insight into what it's like being a fan on the bottom rung of the ladder that is English professional football.
