My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I was shocked that Pritchard included a foreword by Jack Brabham, then went on to say that Stirling Moss was a better driver! Of course, Brabham was the whole package, from driver, to engineer, to mechanic, to producer. The list of his victories, which eclipses that of Moss, prove my point. Pritchard even states that Brabham won so often it became "boring"! I suspect he was referring to Stirling Moss's almost madness behind the wheel - a tenacious and courageous driver if ever there was one who survived driving in such a manner. But I am still shocked that Brabham was humble enough to write a foreword in a book which stuck him in with the "colonials"!
