"The years 1985 to 1997 were memorable in the annals of the British Grand Prix. They witnessed four spectacular wins by Nigel Mansell, and one each by Damon Hill and Johnny Herbert, but these bare facts don't begin to tell the story of the excitement and drama of the races held during those years.
In this, the author's second book based on his remarkable collection of photographs and memorabilia, he recreates the 'up-close' excitement of the paddock and the pits during the twelve British Grands Prix races held at Silverstone, and one at Brands Hatch.
As with his book When Motor Racing Was Fun, the author's almost unique relationship with the team owners and drivers, coupled with his inexhaustible passion for the sport of motor racing, provides the reader with an insight rarely achieved. His superb collection of personal photographs, the detail of his recollections and his boundless enthusiasm is transferred here to the page, bringing the reader 'Closer to the Action' of some of the most exciting and innovative years of British motor sport."
