Clark's passion didn't spread to this reader
on 25 October 2016
This is a compilation of short articles and as such doesn't really hang together well. A few more dates are needed for context. It's written by a very wealthy and privileged man who seems to have little interest in the sports cars of mere mortals, for example MGs and Triumphs. No, he's a Bentley, Rolls Royce and Porsche man, although to be fair amongst his favourite saloons are a 2CV and a souped up rusty Beetle.
His position as a member of the establishment, as a motoring journalist and as MP gave Clark free access to many races and motoring legends, though in this book there's little that is revelatory or memorable.
It's a reasonable read for enthusiasts and cheap, but I was somewhat unimpressed.
