Many of the pioneering events were death-defying, trans- continental marathons, in which the competitors were obliged to negotiate basic dirt tracks, muddy bogs, fast-flowing rivers, over-zealous policemen and a seemingly endless supply of stray dogs. Barely contained in this new digital edition are 80+ bizarre, brilliant and bonkers stories from over a century of motor racing. They include the Frenchman who drove 25 miles in reverse- the Grand Prix where the leading drivers were so far ahead that they stopped for a meal in the pits- the Le Mans 24-hour race won by a car patched up with chewing gum- and the driver who drunk six bottles of champagne on the way to winning the Indianapolis 500.Author InformationGeoff Tibballs is the author of Great Sporting Eccentrics, The Olympics Stangest Moments, Great Sporting Mishaps and Great Sporting Scandals.

He lives in Nottingham.
