'Collage is a unique record of an era and a driver that changed the nature of Formula One as we know it.' – Top Gear, BBC
'This wonderful book, which is beautifully presented, is a great tribute to Sir Jackie Stewart. As a proud Scot, Jackie Stewart survived at a time when few of the top Grand Prix drivers lived beyond the sport. This book is a trip down memory lane in the most vivid and explicit fashion.' – His Serene Highness II, Sovereign Prince of Monaco
A unique account of the incredible racing career of Sir Jackie Stewart told through the unseen archive of the Stewart family albums and Sir Jackie's own in-depth commentary.Collage begins with Sir Jackie's early sports car and Formula Three races and culminates in his retirement after winning a third world championship in 1973.
In between times was a relentlessly high-octane career that included racing in Formula One, Two and Three - often simultaneously - Le Mans, CanAm, the Indianapolis 500 twice and two eventful Tasman Series. He chalked up 27 Grand Prix victories in 99 starts, was awarded an OBE and, in 1966, suffered a near-fatal crash that led to him becoming a pioneering campaigner for improved driver safety.'Between 1968 and 1973 there was a two-in-three chance I was going to die. I thought that was wrong so I went about trying to change it fairly vigorously. It was highly irregular for a driver to be speaking out about safety but in my opinion it's the biggest contribution I made to motor sport - much more so than winning three world championships.' - Sir Jackie Stewart
'These pages offer glimpses of a life that ended for me over three decades ago, a life that contained loss and sadness as well as the euphoria of success.' - Sir Jackie Stewart
