When Britain Ruled the Roads

  • Date September 17, 2020
  • Time 7:30pm - 9:30pm
  • Suitable for Adults

Classic talk

Peter Grimsdale has worked in TV on a wide range of programmes, from The Adam & Joe Show to Crimewatch and Big Brother and Dispatches. His first novels Perfect Night and Just Watch Me are thrillers inspired by his BBC assignments to Sri Lanka and secret filming in Communist Albania.

His latest book - High Performance - When Britain Ruled the Roads springs from a lifelong passion for cars. 'I didn't want to write a car book just for enthusiasts - I wanted to tell a true story about a band of brilliant, rebellious folk who happen to design cars, one that which the wider public might not have come across before, a piece of real social history which one way or another has touched everyone".

Tonight he will be talking about those post-war privateers who were making cars and running racing teams on a shoestring from their own garages - Cooper, Lotus, Brabham, Tyrell, Walker all spring immediately to mind.
