About the book

‘Auto racing is boring except when a car is going at least 172 miles per hour upside down.’ Dave Barry

‘Truth is beauty, beauty is truth. Which makes the new Subaru Impreza a whopping lie.’ Jeremy Clarkson

‘You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen, it said “Parking fine”.’ Tommy Cooper

Calling all petrolheads, motor racing fanatics, Top Gear fans, boy racers and car geeks: here at last is a book of laughs especially for you.
