by Frank Gardner
Drive to Survive: by racing driver, team manager and high performance driving school proprietor Frank Gardner is the best advice about driving that ever came between two covers.
Frank Gardner raced almost everything and everywhere during his lengthy career - from Jaguar XK120s and C- and D-Types, to Aston Martins, Ford's GT40, Lotus, and Formula 1 cars, to Sports and Saloon Cars in Britain and the US, to the Tasman series in Australia and the European Formula 2 and Formula 5000 championships.
He also ran a Performance Driving Centre, where much of the knowledge he acquired from his many successful years of racing could be put to good use by regular road-users.
