    Hello guys. :)

    Does anybody have a copy of the book titled ‘The Solidus’ which they would be happy to sell to me.

    I have searched everywhere for it and I just don’t seem to be able to get hold of it. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out.

    Thank you very much.

    P.S. This is my first post and not really sure if I should have posted my request in this section.

    It was serialised in Smartsig magazine, many years ago now

    You could try contacting son-of-smartsig:

    who may be able to point you in the right direction

    A really interesting read. I’ve computerised, from cover to cover.
    The problem is accurate data. As a result of rail movement and going descriptions, results can only be relied on in calibrated straight races and a/w. Solely, "The Solidus" contributed in my winning TRF Grade 1 Class 1 flat competition.
    If you send me a private message with your address, I’ll send you a photo copy of this extremely rare and valuable gem.

    the list

    more famous than the hanging gardens
    much rarer than the seven glass skulls some
    emanating from the Aztec/Mayan civilizations.
    Once in possession of it – just as deadly…

    "It is said that when he willed death
    with the help of the skull,
    death invariably followed.
    The problem is there is little
    evidence to draw on as
    he used the skull frequently
    and didn’t like those with big mouths
    or the appearance of half a brain."

    Thank you very much for all the replies and offers of helping me out regarding the ‘solidus’.

    A very kind gentleman sent me a PDF.

    Wishing you all a very happy christmas. (I will be spending the break getting stuck into the book)

    Hi All

    this my first post. I am desperate to get a copy of the Solidus which I am finding very difficult to source. I am not sure if its acceptable to beg on your first post ….if you dont ask you dont get. Anyway does anybody have a copy they would like to sell. I have heard a lot about the book and am interested in it with a view to maybe using it to drive my selections. I programme in VB and think this would be an interesting project for me to take on as i am now retired. Please can you help

    Davey Towey’s Book ‘The Solidus’.

    The Racing sense (SSR1) program was written under Davey’s direction. Many of you have asked if Davey’s 1993 book is still available. We’ve just managed to organise a reprint. Unfortunatly the binding is not a good as the original but the 100 pages with all the original charts, coloured graphs and pictures, are superb. The book thoroughly explains the original concepts and ideas in Davey’s own inimitable style. If you have a computer and are not very good at mathematics, the above program follows his method exactly. If you haven’t a computer or want to use his system on non-UK races, this is the book for you.

    The book is available

    now for £15, Postage and Packing Free
