Ballington Unkorked is the story of a South African boy who fell in love with motorcycle racing after watching international stars at his home town circuit.

His pure passion drove him onwards and upwards as he began living out his dream. A chance trip to Europe to take part in the big time triggered a phase where,

against the odds, guts and perseverance took him to the very pinnacle of success, World Champion Road Racer.

Kork’s story gives you an insight into the complexities of the sport technically, physically and mentally and highlights the extreme danger faced by riders of the era when classic highspeed

circuits were still in use in Europe and rider safety was low priority at most International and Grand Prix venues.
