Tyre destruction, power slides and continuous drooling


Chris Harris has driven more cars than most people could ever dream of. His vast knowledge is legendary. He calls it 'unhinged geekery'. But we call it infectious enthusiasm, adrenaline-fueled escapism and peerless journalistic rigour and integrity.

And then there are his famous skills at the wheel, from city cars to rally cars, F1 to vintage, not forgetting the Guinness World Record 3.4km sideways in an electric car.

And now for the first time, Harris is going all out with that unhinged geekery, and takes us down the road of his life-long adventure with the automobile - from the Scalextric track to the Nürburgring 24 Hour, via his own formative low-powered Somerset version of The Dukes of Hazard.

A highly individual, petrol-soaked life story that's all down to variable valve timings.

Fantastic Audio Book

If you’re into cars you’ll love this totally down to earth bloke who clearly loves his cars. It’s an eye opener into the world of the automotive journalist who we all think just blast around in new cars and live a stress free life! How wrong!!

Audio heroine for the ears

Listened to this book while travelling to work. It was fantastic and I was genuinely a bit gutted when the chapter saying foreword started. Very interesting story and one of a normal man behind the screen.
Great effort

Brilliant!

Brilliant listen. A great mix of sincerity and humour. There is some content within that you can relate to and respect, no matter what your background , and they will almost have you telling those around you to stop cutting onions.
