Touch Wood! was first published in 1960 just seven years after Hamilton and Tony Rolt brought Jaguar their second win at Le Mans in 1953.

It covers Hamilton’s early life and his wartime flying experiences in the Fleet Air Arm before picking up his post-war start in the motor trade at Henlys which set him off on a career in motor sport.

In the Jaguar world his stories are legendary, partly from his own after dinner speaking engagements and this book covers it all in Hamilton’s own inimitable, often hilarious way.

This edition includes over 100 photographs, has been edited and extended by motoring journalist, Doug Nye. Hardback and dust cover in very good condition.
