Review

For those who love British sports cars, especially Austin-Healeys and the limited production MGC series, this book provides some very interesting historical insight filled with Chatham's wild ride through life." Classic MG magazine "From early 100S sorties to the saga of his ex-Le Mans 'DD 300', the tale is spiced with the highs and lows of his private and business lives. Like its subject, it never come off the gas." Classic & Sports Car "

"This is an engaging story, well told, and decent value too." - Octane

"An account which will strike a chord not only with admirers of Big Healeys but also with anyone who believes that independent thinking, and the courage to apply and enjoy it, is the greatest of all virtues." - Hertfordshire Countryside magazine
"Veloce's typically well produced book, with copious illustrations interspersed with cartoons by Jim Watson, is a 'must read' not only for all Healey enthusiasts but for all fans of club motorsport from the '60s and beyond." - Speedscene

"A superb and authorised biography of one of British motorsport's 'bad boys'. An entertaining read for anyone with an independent streak!" - Totalkitcar

"An entertaining account of one of motorsport's great characters." - Track Driver

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.
