Graham Hill - A Master of Motorsport

John Tipler

Graham Hill's long career was one of the most remarkable in modern motor racing. At his peak in the mid-1960s he was at the forefront of Grand Prix and sports car racing, competing against the very best drivers of his era. Today his name evokes one of the classic ages of motor racing.

This new biography of this determined and popular man recalls his great victories - his two F1 Championships and 14 Grand Prix wins, and triumph at the Indy 500 and the Le Mans 24 Hours. It also considers Hill's later move from driving to team ownership, a new stage in a tireless career which was so cruelly cut short when he and the principal members of his team were killed in a plane crash in 1975.
