He began his career as a dyslexic accountant. He keeps a low profile and dislikes publicity. And he’s set to become the world’s best-known name in the business of motor sport. Meet David Richards, the quintessential Driven Man. This book is the first to tell Richards’ life story, from an unlikely beginning to the even-less-likely present: a real shot at world racing domination. Through a series of revealing anecdotes and encounters, author Alan Henry takes readers from Richards’ first competition as a rally navigator to his World Rally Championship as team principal for Subaru. As Richards stands poised to take Ford’s Aston Martin team to the GT Sports Car racing championship, and to take his BAR Formula 1 team to the Grand Prix, we see firsthand the determination and character that have made the near-miraculous a real possibility. A three-time World Rally Champion and a multi-millionaire who has made his rally car preparation company a success on three continents, David Richards emerges here as a very private man with a very large public presence and a key to the inside workings of the most glamorous and complex of international sports.
