An excellent read, and one in which the author's enthusiasm for his subject shines through.

The reader is transported around the worlds' circuits by the authors' passion for the sport.
Antique and Collectors Trader

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)

The reader is transported around the worlds' circuits by the authors' passion for the sport.
