This release of The Racing Driver contains much new material, including a new preface by the author himself. The new foreword is by Sir Stirling Moss, who won the 1955 Mille Miglia with Jenkinson at his side. Also new are two appendices. The first is a discussion the author had with Ayrton Senna on the psychological attributes of the modern race driver. In the second, Doug Nye, author and close friend, provides a final tribute to Denis Jenkinson.
