Tony Mason started rallying in the early '60s, winning events both as a driver and navigator. He went on to co-drive for the Ford works team, winning outright the 1972 RAC Rally of Great Britain with Roger Clark. He then moved to television, becoming 'Mr Rallying' on BBC TV's Top Gear. Tony's jovial personality brought him a huge following as he presented a variety of items for 15 years. He appeared on several other programmes and was regularly on TV in Australia and New Zealand. Tony is widely travelled, having visited nearly 100 countries. He currently entertains on P&O cruise ships around the world.
'Hugely entertaining, and a great insight into both the world of rallying and television.' Motorsport News 'It's an interesting and easy, down-to-earth read and covers a wide subject range. For rally fans it provides an insight into a life that all of us would probably like to copy - rallying at every available opportunity. There's plenty of lessons for budding navigators and some examples of what to do and what not to do when you're in the left hand seat ... Within the book's 200+ pages there's plenty to read, together with a good number of descriptive photos to illustrate the story ... we loved it.' RallySport 'reading [the book] is like having Tony just chatting away to you in a comer of your front room, with the same infectious enthusiasm bouncing off the pages ... a rattling good read and as with all Veloce titles, it's excellent value for money. An ideal read for a Saturday afternoon in the deckchair or on a long plane flight. It's all light-hearted fun, as you would expect.' Old Stager. Veloce's well-presented 208-page book fits an extra 25% more words on each page but print size remains easy to read. There are several pages of high quality and evocative images that graphically illustrate the author's life. Mason's self-written book is a great read for anyone interested in motor sport and rallying in particular but, it also makes amusing reading. IRDC Quattro.
