Publication of Crossley – The Rise of the Sidevalves

The Michael Sedgwick Memorial Trust supports a wide range of publications in the field of motoring history. Our latest supported book takes us to the Edwardian period and chronicles the Crossley Motors works competition team which participated at sprint events between the years 1910 and 1914. As well as recording the successes, technical innovations and drivers of Crossley, it also provides a wider picture of motorsport in those halcyon days before the outbreak of the Great War.

The author, Tom Fryars, has personal experience of these cars as the owner and restorer of the only remaining 20HP 1912 Crossley. This limited edition book is available from  at £35.00
