Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Perry McCarthy decided at the age of 18 that he wanted to reach the top in the world’s most expensive sport. With no racing experience, no cash, and little going for him except a passion for speed, the exuberant Cockney shouldn’t have stood a chance. He never gave up, however, and his relentless search for backing and recognition led the man The Times dubbed ‘the world’s unluckiest racing driver’ to heroic, often hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking efforts to make it into Formula 1. This is his autobiography.

Synopsis:

This is the updated third edition of the hilarious – and at times harrowing – autobiography of Perry McCarthy, alias ‘The Stig’ on BBC TV’s world-famous Top Gear.

About the Author

Perry McCarthy — sometime actor (scheduling meetings by impersonating James Hunt) and pizza delivery man (to trick his way into the F1 paddock) — is in constant demand as a motor racing pundit and after-dinner speaker. He lives near Billericay, Essex.
