The 1950s and 1960s were a revolutionary period in motor sport history, and there are few left who were as close to Formula One in that time as leading mechanic Tony Robinson. Tony started in Grand Prix racing as mechanic to Stirling Moss, and went on to work touring Europe with privateer Grand Prix driver Bruce Halford, before becoming chief mechanic at BRP where he was reunited with (Sir) Stirling.  This is a fascinating account of life in the pit lane.

Freelance journalist Ian Wagstaff won the Mercedes Benz Montagu of Beaulieu Trophy for his 2006 book, The British at Le Mans. This was followed in 2010, by The British at Indianapolis. He wrote for Autosport and Motoring News before becoming press and promotions manager at Silverstone in the late 1970s. His current work for titles such as Racecar Engineering and Zytek Motorsport takes him to races throughout Europe and the USA. In addition to his work in racing, he has also written extensively on the automotive components industry, and has won the Pierre Dreyfus award for his work with The Economist Intelligence Unit.
