Eric de Seynes has been a privileged player and witness to the world of motorcycling for almost 50 years as a mechanic, rider, journalist, producer, world championship team manager, Formula 1 and Grand Prix motorcycle sponsorship director, and championship organiser and promoter. Currently President of Yamaha Motor Europe, de Seynes has always upheld his commitment to living his passion to the full daily.
This unique career path has given de Seynes a wealth of experience and a close relationship with many of the personalities that have “made motorcycling” and the racing legends that have won world championships over the last few decades.
In “Legends”, de Seynes shares more than just his memories over 300 pages. He thanks those with whom he has made his life’s journey, and he shares his passion through 40 portraits of champions and major players in the world of motorcycling.
In an account rich in intimate memories, anecdotes and previously unpublished photographs, de Seynes pays tribute to the passion, genius and talent of those that have written, and continue to write, the incredible history of motorcycle racing.
“This book takes us to the heart of passion, racing and the world of motorcycling as we all love them,” declared Jorge Viegas, President of the International Motorcycling Federation (FIM).
A great seasonal gift for the true motorcycle racing enthusiast, “Legends” is available in both English and French language versions and can be ordered online at Yamaha Motor here or purchased at Yamaha dealers throughout Europe.
The proceeds from the sale of “Legends” will be donated to the Endowment Fund for Motorcycling Sport Heritage (FDPSM), an organisation dedicated to safeguarding the heritage of motorcycle racing.
