When Denny Hulme won the 1967 Formula 1 World Championship, he jokingly asked Jim Clark to do 'the fame bit' for him as he so disliked being in the spotlight. Behind the wheel of a racing car, however, the self-effacing New Zealander, known affectionately as 'The Bear', showed ferocious determination. Racing was a passion. This book charts his illustrious career, which included eight Grand Prix victories and two CanAm sports car titles.
