Crashed and Byrned by Tommy Byrne
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The surreal tale of a poverty-stricken Dundalk kid's rise to become the only racing driver the great Ayrton Senna ever feared, and how it all went wrong from there. It's raw, passionate, and with Byrne's ability to tell it like it is, not for the faint-hearted. Peppered with dark humour and a cast of ridiculous characters, it is the antithesis of a fairytale, and it's all true.
