This review is from: Motor Sport Greats...in conversation (Hardcover)
Simon Taylor is deservedly a well respected motoring journalist, sadly somewhat passed over by both TV and print in our quick fix age. All the more then that we should be grateful to Motor Sport magazine for commissioning this series of interviews and to Haynes for publishing this selection for those of us who never saw them at the time.
These are no quickie ten minutes in a motor home with a Team Minder in attendance to make sure the interviewee stayed on record. Instead Simon Taylor takes the person out to lunch and then writes up a 6000 word summary of the interview. The 25 published in this book include Chis Amon, Mario Andretti, Jacky Ickx & Jody Scheckter among the drivers, who all share something of their life after Grand Prix racing, along with the likes of Sid Watkins, Tom Wheatcroft & Gordon Murray from outside the cockpit, but with no less interesting lives for that.
If you have any interest in motor racing earlier than the last race, then you will enjoy this book, and lets hope Haynes will be encouraged to publish a follow up volume.
