I greatly enjoyed this lucidly written, straightforward account of Vic Elford's competition driving experiences between 1960 and 1973. Rallying for BMC,Triumph,Ford and Porsche;endurance racing for Porsche,Martini-Porsche,Alfa Romeo and Filipinetti;Grand Prix for Cooper and Antique Automobiles;Can-Am for Chaparral - a wide spectrum of tracks and machinery. His greatest successes came in the Targa Florio and at the 'Ring using skills learnt in rallies (and he enjoyed the rain!). My respect grew enormously as I read and I found his views on modern racing very telling. Fully illustrated, mostly b&w, some colour and an index.

One of the best recent motor sport books. Vic Elford's career unfolds in a well written tale that includes winning the Monte Carlo Rally for Porsche and mastering the 917, one of the greatest racing cars of all time. Highly recommended!

This very well written account of Vic Elford's racing career will appeal to all those who were fans of motor sport during the 1960s and '70s. What a contrast with today's drivers. Quick Vic piloted anything and everything, and was always fast. It would seem amazing to a driver today to hop out of a rally car and into a Grand Prix Car, then pitch up a few weeks later to race a Porsche sports car. Vic tells the story with modesty, humour and honesty. The book is one of the best of its kind - very well illustrated, nicely produced and easy to read. Strongly recommended.
