How Not to Be a Professional Racing Driver
Pre-order your copy of the full-throtle memoir, How Not to Be a Professional Racing Driver, now! My name is Jason Plato. Two-time championship-winning and record-breaking racing driver, television presenter, voiceover artist, pilot, bon viveur, hedonist, robber, former inmate of the Monaco police department and a living, breathing example of what you shouldn't do if you want to become a professional racing driver. That's not some idiotic tabloid claim, by the way. That's genuinely who I am. I drink, I smoke, I don't go to the gym and I rarely stick to the script when talking to the media. Yet I'm still racing, and at the same level I was when I first won a seat with the Williams Touring Car Team over twenty years ago. It's no coincidence that I've won more races in the British Touring Car Championship than any other driver and over twice as many as the drivers who've won more championships. Then again, it's also no coincidence that I once spent several days in prison in Monaco for stealing a JCB. There is nothing sensible, predictable or considered about me, I'm afraid. This is my story.

Jim Hall: Chaparral, Texas and the Invention of Modern Racing
Jim Hall is the Charles Lindbergh of motor racing. The man who changed everything. Here, he tells his story for the first time. From racing's earliest days, the men who designed and built these land-bound rocket ships viewed the air that moved over, under, and around a car as ithauled toward 200 miles per hour as a nuisance with which they had to contend. It was Jim Hall who first saw how this nuisance could be turned not only into a force for good, but a breakthrough in vehicle performance. Today, racers call it “downforce”—the amount of downward force that can be exerted on a car’s tires to improve how well the vehicle stops, goes, and, most of all, grips the corners. Hall’s innovations made him both a hero and celebrity throughout the 1960s and ‘70s. He was on the cover of Newsweek and Sports Illustrated and featured in countless newspaper and magazine articles. TheNew York Times alone published 250 stories about Hall over the period. The Chaparral phenomenon reached Europe and Asia, and into seemingly every American home. Hall’s achievements made him more renowned than understood; he was a famously private individual. Part of it was a natural introspection and an almost obsessive focus on his goals. Part of it was the Texas-cowboy ethos that a man’s actions sh...

Jim Clark: The Best of the Best
Jim Clark was a genuine sporting hero. He won 25 of his 72 Grands Prix and in the sixties was the yardstick by which every other driver on the starting grid was judged, and by which they judged themselves. Quite simply, Clark was peerless. Stubborn and notoriously indecisive outside the car, he would nervously chew his fingernails, but he was a genius when he got behind the wheel. To many he remains the greatest racing driver of all time, not just because of his fearsome strike rate and the magnitude and manner of his achievements, but also because he remained humble and unspoiled throughout. Published on the 50th anniversary of Clark's death, this book, 20 years in the making, is a deeply detailed look at a complex and compelling character.
