One thing that did jump out was the "after Senna passed away McLaren needed a replacement...." line - odd that one slipped through the editing process. On the whole though I'm enjoying Johnnys book more than Marks.

I didn't scrutinise the facts closely or check the history books - I just enjoyed what was an amusing if fairly lightweight read.
How was the B? Fixable I hope.

Yeah, I had it repaired, although that turned out to be expensive as when they started removing panels they found a lot of rust! In the end though, it just wasn't the same. I flogged it and bought a Golf GTi.....

The Jack Brabham Story, a good read on the great man, and that era of Formula1 racing and also racing sports car and anything that paid money.

Another one that is interesting and a little bit different-Memories of James Hunt written by Christopher Hilton.

I've got my eye on the Vic Elford bio, it's out of print but his website says he has a few remaining signed copies. They aren't cheap but I look at it as an investment.

Another book, I've had my eye on for years now but is also out of print is the book about the Rodriguez brothers. The prices are truly eye-watering!

Both are really worth the read - Amazon UK has copies of The Brothers Rodriguez at around 60 - a bargain.

If that's case then I'm ordering soon! Thanks. The last time I checked was years ago and copies were going for $300! I'm not kidding! I thought it would still be the case - a bit silly on my part to assume.

I bought the Trans-Am 66-72 book for less than 30 quid on amazon.
Lovely story of that era.
