Synopsis

With personal opinions, careful observations, and measured reflections on motor racing in general, Reg has added his own personal experiences of motor racing, and penned a volume that excites as well as informs the reader.
Reg injects his infectious enthusiasm for the sport, whilst painting a vivid picture of each event and its backdrop, Racing with Heroes captures the atmosphere of these great races, immersing the reader in the action as history is made.

It’s an enjoyable little book and it wont break the bank.
Oily Rag Magazine

Looking back at motorsport’s defining moments, this book documents 15 of the most iconic races dating from 1935 to 2011. And refreshingly, Racing With Heroes isn’t restricted to Formula One, as it also looks back at Le Mans and Mille Miglia classics too. Author May is able to tell all the stories without reverting to statistic-heavy recollections, too.
Auto Express

Formula One’s greatest races, remembered in gushing prose by an F1 super fan.
Classic Cars

A compact, entertaining compilation of memorable Grand Prixs ... plus a few personal reminiscences thrown in for good measure. At just £12.99 this book will make a great Christmas stocking filler.
Retro Speed

One for everyone to enjoy ... easy reading and often in the story it brings to light some small point we had missed in the past. I enjoyed it and hope you will.
MCC (Motor Cycling Club)
