A Fabulous Book,
This review is from: Crashed and Byrned: The Greatest Racing Driver You Never Saw (Paperback)
A very enjoyable and fascinating read. A must for anyone who tracked the racing scene back in the early eighties. It will shock you time and time again. To his credit, Tommy's a candid story teller, and doesn't pull punches. It had me in stitches at times, especially the incident in Derek Daly's office...
Whether he was 'the greatest you never saw' (as the subtitle says) is highly debatable. This sport hosts many hard luck stories, as drivers fight to raise cash, as well as sell their talents. I could name Geoff Lees and Mike Thackewell - contemporaries of Tommy's - as possible candidates for the soubriquet 'the greatest you never saw'. Nonetheless, Tommy was good, and the world of motor sport would be all the richer if Tommy had've fuflilled his potential as a GP driver.
