Brian Redman – Daring Drivers, Deadly Tracks by Brian Redman with Jim Mullen
Brian Redman’s memoir, winner of the RAC Motoring Book of the Year 2016, is a vivid account of this down-to-earth, popular and highly respected racer’s exploits in his perilous era. Highly readable, and at times both funny and poignant, it’s a very personal book.
The great Mario Andretti’s foreword includes this observation: ‘Brian writes like he drove, right to the point and always with passion. He has managed to cap a pretty terrific racing career with a pretty terrific racing memoir.’ Accompanying the text, the book includes over 300 photographs of great quality and variety, and the whole package is produced to a high standard.
An overview of the book’s content confirms Redman’s significant place in motor racing history. There is special focus on his major race wins in the greatest sports cars (including Ford GT40s, Porsche 908s and 917s, and Ferrari 312PBs) on the greatest tracks (including Spa-Francorchamps, the Nürburgring, the Targa Florio and Daytona).
Numerous successes in Formula 5000 (three-times champion in North America) and 2-litre sports cars (European and South African champion) add to his credentials as one of the finest all-rounders motor racing has seen.
