100 years of heroes

COVERING almost 100 years of motor racing history, humanity, not simple statistics, is revealed in a new e-book, Motor Racing Heroes, as the true source of the subjects’ heroism.

There’s David Purley’s valiant attempt at rescuing a trapped Roger Williamson by overturning Willamson’s blazing march with his bare hands during the 1973 Grand Prix of Holland. The lighter side of motor sport is also there, with Giannino Marzotto, who won the 1950 Mille Miglia wearing an immaculate double-breasted suit.

There are many heroes and heroines in this sport. This book is about 100 of them.

Motor Racing Heroes by Robert John Newman is available online priced at £14.99.
