Paul Frere is one of the most respected automotive journalists in the world today and the only person to have successfully pursued simultaneous careers as a professional driver and motorsport journalist.

In this fascinating autobiography, Frere draws on his archives of extraordinary notes to relate technical details of the cars he has driven and personal anecdotes from his careers.

Key content includes: the family’s first car, a Fiat 501, and perilous journeys on French roads ravaged by World War I; his first car, a 2LTS Ballot; his race debut at Spa 24 Hours; experiences driving Formula 1 cars for HW Motors, Equipe Gordini, and Ferrari in the 1950s; his second-place finish in the 1956 Belgian Grand Prix after only ten practice laps in a car he had never driven; winning Le Mans in 1960; and helping Japanese manufacturers design and test cars to suit European tastes.

Hardback in fine ‘as new’ condition.
