The blood and guts-full autobiography of one of Britain's best-loved motor racing drivers, told with his trademark warmth and humour.
Johnny Herbert is one of only nine British drivers to win a Grand Prix since the 1970s, tasting success with Benetton at Silverstone and Monza in 1995, then delivering a one and only top podium place for Jackie Stewart's team at the 1999 European Grand Prix at the N rburgring. He also became the first active Formula 1 driver to win the endurance classic 24 Hours of Le Mans, with Bertrand Gachot and Volker Weidler in 1991, and has been a champion at karting, the Formula Ford Festival, Formula 3, the Eurpoean Le Mans and the Speedcar Series in his long and varied career. As one of the lead pundits on Sky Sports' Formula 1 channel, he remains high-profile and hugely popular. Johnny is widely admired for his encyclopaedic knowledge of motor-racing, as well as for his extraordinary driving skills, legendary sense of humour and love of the sport.
