Overview

The British Grand Prix is the oldest event on the World Championship calendar and the feud over its future, now secured, went on for more than ten years. This is the full story, told from the inside, of the business and personal battles between the British Racing Drivers Club, the organizers of the race, and Bernie Ecclestone, Formula 1's commercial rights holder. It is a story that has it all, combining high-octane personal jealousies (Sir Jackie Stewart and Bernie Ecclestone) and high finance told by a journalist with access to all the characters involved, and who himself served for two years as a BRDC director at the height of this drama.
