About the Author
Trained as an engineer at Rolls-Royce and Bath University, lifelong petrolhead Norman Burr has always worked in specialist publishing, and in 1997 made his first contribution to motorsport writing with Living with Speed, an acclaimed book chronicling a year in the life of hillclimb legend Roy Lane. This is his first fully fledged biography and draws not only on the recollections of John Chatham and those around him, but also on Burr's own experiences, for as a student in the Bristol area in the early 1970s, he knew John at the peak of his driving career.
