Peter Warr Man ' O ' War, 30 Jan 2012
At first glance of the cover of Team Lotus : My View from the Pit Wall I thought what no Glitz no Razzle-Dazzle and not even Gold on the Black and Gold J.P.S. Lotus driven by Ayrton Senna, just a black and white image of the author welcoming home his charges!
But on a second viewing you see the Pride and Joy of Victory on the face of Peter Warr, so emotional that colour is superfluous and the black and white theme then continues on into the personal insight both on and off the race track with all the Triumphs, Trials and Tragic Consequence he became aquainted with at the forefront of Formula 1.
The book is in itself a Catalogue of People, Places, Events and personal Photograph's that made up Peter Warrs intimate knowledge of the years he had at the pit wall, this is written with humour, knowledge and above all a warts and all overview of the various Formula 1 teams, with the people involved both socialy, competitively and also as a governor, from Brian the Broom Leighton who kept the factory tidy up to Bernie Ecclestone who kept Fromula 1 tidy and all in between are flesh and blood and not just a name in a book!
This book is to me like the Dickensian Character Oliver Twist it has left me wanting more!
