Casey Stoner Six Straight

Casey Stoner is a MotoGP legend. With two MotoGP World Championships and six consecutive victories at the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix, Stoner simply walked away from the sport. Fed up with the politics and endless sponsor commitments, Stoner decided to spend time with his family and live a more normal life, away from the prying eyes of the media. Stoner, to this day, remains the last person to win a MotoGP event on the difficult Ducati. Yet he has been often remembered and much maligned for his frank nature and somewhat dour personality. His record speaks for itself, world titles with manufacturers who had struggled to achieve these outcomes, first with Ducati and finally with Honda. This book is a largely pictorial coverage of Stoner's races at the iconic Phillip Island International Raceway, home to the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix. It is a tribute to a rider who is a true champion of the sport. With his return to Ducati as a test rider, there is a glimmer of hope that he will one day return to racing at the island to claim a seventh victory.
