Product Description

Review

Great beasts being thrashed to within microns of their cylinder heads. Great book, Nick! Can I come next time? --Damon Hill

About the Author

Nick Mason inherited his life-long interest in motor sport from his father, the documentary film-maker Bill Mason. When Pink Floyd commitments allow, Nick is able to swap the drumming stool for the driver's seat, and has raced regularly for over 30 years, including competing in five Le Mans races. He is also the author of Inside Out: A Personal History of Pink Floyd. Mark Hales is a professional motor journalist with over 30 years' experience of racing and testing virtually every type of racing car, and has driven most of the world's fastest road cars on track and road. He writes for a range of print and online publications including Octane, Evo, Classic & Sports Car, Top Gear Magazine, Autosport, the Daily Telegraph and the official Ferrari magazine.

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
I blush to admit that I picked up a copy of this book in a high street store while killing time and read the piece on the Porsche 962. That was enough, and I ordered my copy from Amazon, partly to save money, but also because the store copy was a bit tatty, having been picked up by loads of oiks like me. What grabbed me was that the text conveyed some feeling about what the car was like to drive, a bit more thoughtfully than 'THIS IS EPIC!!!'. The rest of the book lives up to that promise, so thoroughly recommended.
