Motorbike racer Maria Costello’s autobiography, Queen of the Bikers, has been made available on Kindle.
The Kindle book is an updated version of the heart-warming account of her life in the fast lane of the British motorbike scene that was first published in hardback in 2010.
The book is an honest and, at times, deeply moving account of her incredible two decades as one of the leading female racers.
Queen of the Bikers, co-written with Steve Pitts, reveals all about a life dedicated to racing and the consequences of that for her body, her mind and her love life. It is a story about the relentless personal drive that led to her overcoming her insecurities and critics to smash records and climb onto the podium at the most famous of motorcycle race venues, the Isle of Man.
Maria’s success as a female competing in a fiercely competitive male-dominated sport resulted in her being made a Member of the British Empire. When she went to Buckingham Palace to receive her medal from Prince Charles, he asked: “Did you come by motorbike?” She had!
Royal recognition confirmed the enormous impact Maria has had as a woman in a man’s world.
In Queen of the Bikers, Maria movingly tells of the great personal cost of following her dream and how, in her own words, “Motorbikes have contributed to many a broken bone, but they’ve never broken my heart…”
