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, complete with updated chapter to bring his story up to the end of 2012. This is an utterly fantastic read Motor Sport. New chapter covers the goings-on in Perry's life up to the end of 2012, including new images. Wild boyhood, a trial at the Brands Hatch Racing School, working on oil rigs to fund his start in the junior formulae. British Formula Ford 1600, becoming 1983 Star of Tomorrow Champion and winning the 1985 Racing for Britain Award. Hilarious stories about chasing sponsorship, pushing for the top. British Formula 3, Formula 3000, IMSA. Against all odds, finally clawing his way into the Formula 1 elite in 1992, with the disastrous Andrea Moda team eight races entered, eight did not qualify . Accumulated massive debts, wheeling and dealing to survive. Competing in numerous sports car and single-seater races around the world. Constantly in debt, struggling to combine racing with family life. Back to the top with Audi in international motor racing. A bold, witty story told with the daredevil verve he showed on track.
