Piers Courage, a rising motor racing star in the 1960s, was the first man to drive for Frank Williams in Formula 1, and tragically died in a Williams-run car at the 1970 Dutch Grand Prix. This enthralling biography, written with his family's cooperation, chronicles the full racing history of the charismatic old Etonian, including the wild Formula 3 days when he and friends roamed Europe surviving on their wits. Recalling a more relaxed era in motorsport, the book features dozens of people who knew Piers including Frank Williams, Bernie Ecclestone, Jackie Stewart, Bette Hill, Nina Rindt and, of course, his wife Lady Sarah, daughter of pre-war racer Earl Howe.
