About the Author

Mark Whitelock's enthusiasm for motor sport started in 1957, when his father took him to Goodwood. On Easter Monday 1960, he was at Goodwood again, cheering Innes Ireland and the Lotus 18 to victory over Stirling Moss, giving him a special affinity with both that car, and that driver.By the early '90s, disillusioned with contemporary Grand Prix racing, Mark turned his attention to historic racing and cars, and become an early supporter of the return of motor sport to the Goodwood circuit.Mark retired from a career in banking in 1999, and took up writing for pleasure.
