Description:

When this book was 1st published, I well remember thinking how Reg Parnell's biography was well overdue, still, the best things are always well worth waiting for. Reg's life as a racing driver was a topsy-turvy affair, after his initial foray in 1934 he had his race licence withdrawn in 1937 after an accident involving & seriously injuring our leading lady race-driver of the day. He got his licence back in time for the '39 season which of course came to a premature end, courtesy of 'Adolf'. Like many others his potentially most effective years as a driver were lost. His application to join the RAF was turned down, as he was told he would be of more use with his transport experience, organising vehicle movements! What a jolly good job he did! as well as what Whitehall had in mind for him, he organised most of the Racing Cars that were 'laying around' at the time into his storage, so come peacetime, the Nation would be as prepared as ever. I have 'rabbited' on to long with this one, so in brief: Designed his own GP Car, Raced & Beat the Best. Set up his own GP Team. Successfully talent scouted and jolly well enjoyed himself. Sadly this human dynamo died age 53 after a very short illness. 208pp inc many photos. Book is in as New Cond in D/J. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description: Patrick Stephens, UK, 1996. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. A bluff Derbyshire pig farmer, Reg Parnell cut a distinctive figure in motorsport circles. His wild early driving style and a serious accident at Brooklands led to his licence being withdrawn from 1937 to 1939. Undaunted he bought up unwanted racing cars before the outbreak of World War II and, when peace returned, sold them to form the basis of British post-war racing revival. He built his own Challenger car, teamed up in Italy with Count Lurani to compete in Scuderia Ambrosiana and raced a factory Alfa Romeo 159, a BRM V16 and Aston Martins and later ran the Yeoman Credit team.
