The Grand Prix Saboteurs
When James Bond meets Michael Schumacher. The idea of racing drivers working as secret agents is at best far-fetched but The Grand Prix Saboteurs tells the amazing true story of how three top Grand Prix drivers from the 1920s and 1930s worked for a clandestine British secret service in occupied France, during World War II.The product of 18 years of research, the book tells a story that remained top secret until the British Government finally agreed to release classified documents in 2003. It dazzles with swashbuckling escapes, shocking betrayals and a story you will never forget.
The 4 volumes explore some of the amazing stories behind the drivers, teams and team owners, cars, tracks and races.
The short stories are between 500 to 1,000 words (100 in each book) so you can pick up a volume and put it down without losing the thread.
Back in the 1980s, Joe began writing columns in Autosport magazine, designed to pick up readers and carry them away to the places where international races were taking place. The goal was to amuse and inform, but primarily to transport fans to exotic places and give them a sense of what it is like to part of Grand Prix racing.
The Green Notebook follows in that tradition. It is a mix of F1 writing (taking fans behind the scenes and breaking stories) and travel writing.
Peter takes the readers behind the scenes of Formula 1, where the story of the greatest names, the wildest dramas and the constant development unfold.
Every anecdote is illustrated by fantastic pictures and words from those who experienced the episodes with their own eyes - from the car, from the pit or around the track.
Formula 1 driver Kevin Magnussen and photographer and journalist Peter Nygaard discuss 10 iconic F1 circuits (Albert Park, Interlagos, Nürburgring, Monaco, Spa-Francorchamps, Monza, Suzuka, Marina Bay, Silverstone, Autódromo Hermanos Rodriguez) where horsepower and technology are not always enough to win or even cross the finish line.
