This is the story of when Grand Prix was out of control. Mechanical failure, lethal track design, fire and incompetence snuffed out dozens of eager young drivers, who had become almost expendable. It was the 60s and early 70s and this waste of life was often televised for millions to see. With boycotts of the prestigious Belgian and German Grand Prix, drivers fought to get their voices heard but it would be a long and painful time before conditions changed. Featuring many famous drivers, including three World Champions Emerson Fittipaldi, Sir Jackie Stewart and John Surtees OBE John L Matthews goes to the heart of these deadly years in the Grand Prix and tells the story in the words of the men who were there. This paperback book has 159 pages and measures: 19.8 x 13 x 1.3cm

Tatenda Taibu was named captain of the Zimbabwe cricket team in April 2004, aged just twenty years old. Being the youngest skipper in the history of Test cricket and first black player to captain Zimbabwe in the sport, he was exiled in Bangladesh just over a year later. On the run from a cricket board who tried to threaten him into silence, Taibu would return to the game that he loves but would always question his purpose. Now aged 19, he would shock the sport world and walk away from cricket altogether to concentrate fully on his Christian faith. Explore the Keeper of Faith and discover this unblinking and ultimately uplifting account of cricket, conflict and God in the chaos and violence of Mugabe's Zimbabwe.
