Product description


Pure entertainment . . . So much fun . . . His journey from outrageous teenage hijinks to the rough-and-tumble of driver feuding tends to prompt involuntary reading noises, be they barks of laughter or gasps at his audacity (Guardian, Best Sports Books of 2019)

Hilarious and outrageous (Chris Evans)

As entertaining as watching him drive, a cracking read! (Sir Chris Hoy)

I read this in the hope that it would teach me everything I need to know so that one day I can become a racing driver although I think I may have left it too late... (Howard Donald, Take That)

Top class chauffeur, sublime broadcaster, ultimate party honey badger. These are the qualities I know and adore about JP. He taught me how to nail a hot lap around Rockingham and I've been in a speed jive ever since. Jason can burn the candle at both ends and in the middle yet still deliver the business. (Suzi Perry, Fifth Gear)

Jason Plato is one of the most gifted racing drivers of his generation! (Damon Hill)

Jason is a total fruitcake! (Jody Scheckter, Former F1 World Champion)

Irreverent (iNews, The best Christmas car gifts)

Plato is adept at telling a story. Totally authentic. There's plenty of laughs to be had and insight on offer (Autosport)

The frank autobiography of British Touring Car Championship legend (Motorsport News, Christmas Gift Guide)

Book Description

To be a professional racing driver you need to work out, eat like an athlete and play by the rules, right? Wrong.
