Praise for How Not to Be a Professional Racing Driver

Hilarious and outrageous

Chris Evans

Jason Plato is one of the most gifted racing drivers of his generation!

Damon Hill

As entertaining as watching him drive, a cracking read!

Sir Chris Hoy

I read this in the hope that it would teach me everything I need to know so that one day I can become a racing driver although I think I may have left it too late...

Howard Donald, Take That

Jason is a total fruitcake!

Jody Scheckter, Former F1 World Champion

Top class chauffeur, sublime broadcaster, ultimate party honey badger. These are the qualities I know and adore about JP. He taught me how to nail a hot lap around Rockingham and I've been in a speed jive ever since. Jason can burn the candle at both ends and in the middle yet still deliver the business.

Suzi Perry, Fifth Gear

Pure entertainment . . . So much fun . . . His journey from outrageous teenage hijinks to the rough-and-tumble of driver feuding tends to prompt involuntary reading noises, be they barks of laughter or gasps at his audacity

Guardian, Best Sports Books of 2019

Plato is adept at telling a story. Totally authentic. There's plenty of laughs to be had and insight on offer

Autosport

The frank autobiography of British Touring Car Championship legend

Motorsport News, Christmas Gift Guide

Irreverent

iNews, The best Christmas car gifts

There's plenty of laughs to be had and insight on offer

Motorsport News

An account of a larger-than-life character whose life outside of the car is just as exhilarating as in it

NB Magazine

It makes for one of the great sporting life stories . . . Forget everything you thought about sports stars and any expectations of sports autobiographies. Plato is truly an unconventional sportsman, and this is truly an unconventional autobiography, but it is all the better for being so
