    I have read this book, and Mr. Frere was kind enough to send me a signed copy, along with a letter.
    Wonderful book, and I highly recommend it. (Not just because he is an aquaintance.)

    Shouldn't be that hard to get, try amazon.com, or Motorbooks, etc. It was publishe by Haynes a couple of years ago, so you should easily be able to goet a copy.

    Great read.
    Her is a cover scan.

    Hi Abavi ;

    Yes, I have had the pleasure of meeting Paul. He is a true gentelman, and can tell may stories, for hours on end.

    I have over 400 Motor racing books, on Ferrari, Porsche and Formula 1 racing. It would be a bit of a struggle to scan a bunch of pics, as well as the fact that I am very picky about the books, and don't really like scnning them, and handling them...they also never get lent out !
    Here is someone who is actually selling the book on Ebay, and he went to the trouble of scanning a lot of the book, and added solme good descriptions as well. Check this link, and I am sure you will like the book,
    Trus me, it is worth getting.

    Cheers,

    hps

    I have a paperback copy of Paul Frere's earlier book, "Starting Grid to Chequered Flag", copyright 1962, that I bought a few years ago for $5.00.
