Motor enthusiast, Peter Grimsdale recounts the story of how the spirit of the indomitable and endlessly inventive WWII escapers lived on in the maverick band of `petrol-head' designers, drivers and daredevils who broke free from the shackles of post-war British austerity and created the world-beating sports cars - on road and track - that defined the Swinging Sixties, and still remain among the handful of truly iconic marques today. An epic narrative, full of intrigue, strong personalities and beautiful cars such as the E Type Jaguar. Think Easy Riders meets Monte Carlo Or Bust!
