Archie And The Listers: The Heroic Story Of Archie Scott Brown And The Racing Marque He Made Famous

  • Barcode: 9781852604691
On 3 April 1954, the product of an unlikely union first took to the track, at Snetterton in Norfolk. It was a Lister-MG sports racing car, driven by a Scottish amateur who made his living as a travelling salesman. He stormed through to win. The disabled driver was Archie Scott Brown. Over the next five years he won 71 major races, 44 of them in Cambridge built Lister cars. The book chronicles Archie Scott Brown's personal life, from being born with both legs severely malformed, through countless operations that led to a remarkably normal childhood and adolescence. The author follows his fascination with fast cars, early wins in an MG TD, his introduction to engineer, Brian Lister, and the influence his driving had on the development of the marque.
