“I had the pleasure of meeting the author recently and found out about his book after researching the Costin Nathan cars. I'm so glad I bought a copy as its one of the finest racing books I've read in quite some while; this is a must read for anyone with but a passing interest in 1960's motorsport.
All told in an incredibly readable style and I found the book hard to put down.
No spoilers, but Roger has indeed had a very adventurous life and the reader is teased with the thought that, after retiring from racing, life became more adventurous still......I do hope we get a second instalment. Highly, highly recommended.”
