    Hi everyone! My name is Richard Melville. I am a former racing driver. I drove GT cars in Europe in the early sixties, Formula Supervees and Atlantic in the States and Canada, and finally in New Zealand in the mid-seventies. Recently I wrote a book: Grand Prix: Formula One in the deadly years. The novel is about Formula One motor-racing driver in the deadly years of the 1970s. This is what people saying about my book:

    “Over the years I have tried to find a good Formula One novel. I finally found it” — Douglas Harper
    “I just finished reading the novel and enjoyed it very much. I would not be surprised if it becomes a movie. I think it would make a great one. It is one of the best novels I have read in a long time, if not the best ever” — Bob Costey

    You may read the first chapter for free here: Or you may go to my website: and find out more.


    I'd love to hear your thoughts about the book. Thanks and look forward to conversing with you all.
