Juan Manuel Fangio's illustrious name is indelibly inscribed in the record books and many consider him to be the greatest driver in history. Yet his extraordinary life was as remarkable as his racing achievements.
It was 46 years before his record of five World Championships was beaten, but even now he is still remembered for an exceptional Formula 1 career, which contained some of the greatest displays of skill and daring ever seen. Few, though know of his almost super-human exploits in epic South American road races that made competition at the pinnacle of motor sport seem like child's play. Gerald Donaldson chronicles not only those arduous early competitions but also his long journey from humble origins in remote Argentina to the lofty heights of international celebrity.
Fangio flourished in an era when racing was raw and romantic, when heroic drivers manhandled machines on duanting and dangerous tracks that are no more. Out of the car his personal magnetism made him one of the most charismatic sportsmen of all time. Fangio:The Life Behind The Legend, written by motor sport's most highly regarded biographer- Gerald Donaldson- is a marvellously fitting tribute to a truly iconic figure.Biografía del autor:
