Praise for SGMA16's sister publication, SCOUT'S GUIDE TO MOTOGP 2016:
"I am always a bit cynical about things like this, as they tend to be written with an ‘angle’ depending on who writes them. I intended to give the guide a quick look over but ended up reading it from cover to cover. The analysis, backed up with the comments from people in the paddock, make it incredibly engaging. I really enjoyed it and I’m a jaded PR person!" -- Ian Wheeler, Marketing & Communications Manager at Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS
"This digital book is awesome! Be the most knowledgeable MotoGP fan on your block!" -- Greg White, motorcycle racing television personality
"We've never had anything like this for MotoGP. It is an amazing read." -- Larry Lawrence, Cycle News Contributing Editor and one of the leading motorcycle racing historians in America
"You won't find a better guide to the 2016 MotoGP field than Chris Martin's Scout's Guide. Absolutely outstanding." -- Louis Suddaby, BikeLive presenter for Downforce Radio, MotoGP reporter for TheCheckeredFlag.co.uk
