Bob Watson has a deep and undiminished passion for driving and rallying in particular, a passion that has taken him further, faster and to more fascinating places than most Australians.
As an automotive development engineer, rally and race driver, and in more recent years as the organiser of many iconic motoring events, Bob has conquered race tracks and goat tracks, from Bathurst to Birdsville and from Tanzania to Tasmania, in a great variety of vehicles. Along the way he has shared his passion with many fascinating characters, all of whom come to life through Bob's entertaining narrative in this riveting account of a life behind the wheel.
While many circuit racing drivers have sought to tell their tales, this is a rare insight into the little seen world of rallying, marathon and long distance driving by one of Australia's most decorated and personable motorsport identities. Watson is well qualified to describe this adventure side of motor sport, having won an Australian and four Victorian rally championships and numerous international rallies in Australia, while also competing with success in major events overseas. A great read from a great Australian motoring character.
