Started reading The Bobby Unser Story on Alberto's recommendation, and I'm already thoroughly enjoying it.  Bobby's personality comes through clear as a bell.  Of course when I'm reading it, I hear his distinctive voice in my head  Very Happy  "SAM, YOU'RE WRONG!"  LOL

Have read the new book by Bob Kehoe on Art Pollard this week, very good book starts abit slow but very interesting as I didn't know a huge amount about Art before. He appears to have been a real gentleman on and off the track who would of achieved more in Indycars had he got to that level earlier in his life (he was almost 40 when he did his first race).

Quite possibly the best autobiography i have ever read. I recommend it to any touring car fan, many funny moments in the book including while he was sat on the grid, he looked over at Peter Brock who was pointing at a pair of tits in the crowd :rigol: to his adventures in NASCAR and almost losing his team.


I read it on kindle as it is hard to get here in the UK, but if you can get it, read it!

Alex is simply an extraordinary human being. This book is really fun to read. The fact that he called Ganassi "Cheeep/Cheap" made me laugh so hard Wink




Not a typical racing book, but man, what an interesting read. And sad, too. Steve Olvey and Terry Trammel are true heroes

Couple of books I enjoyed over the years I fully recommend:

Brock Yates: Enzo Ferrari - The man, the cars, the races
Peter Morgan - Porsche 917: The winning formula
Michael Fuller: Inside IMSA's legendary GTP Race cars
