Dalton Watson's latest autobiography is the life and times of that larger-than-life character, Colin Crabbe, who found himself at the forefront of motor racing, firstly as a privateer racing Ford GT40s in 1966 then driving in the 1967 World Championship. He cut his teeth during 1969 as an owner and team manager in Formula One having found he was too large to fit an F1. Colin reckoned he had to be one of the last great gentleman amateurs at the cutting edge of motor sport. In 1968 he located in East Germany one of the pre-war Silver Arrows, a Mercedes W125 Grand Prix car. Colin raced the Mercedes and numerous other historic racing cars until a bad crash put an end to this in 1988. When not motor racing, he travelled around the globe looking for forgotten treasures in the motoring world. What once was a hobby and passion had become a serious business, albeit one that involved Colin invariably getting himself into various scrapes, tangles and unusual adventures.

Thrill Of The Chase November 10, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Clarkston, MI United States  
Great read of a life "well lived" by a "larger than life"
(figuratively, as well as actually per his comments about {not} fitting in some of the cars) character.

Thanks for the stories, Colin.

Thrill of the Chase September 2, 2016
Reviewer: Rhonda Madden from San Rafael, CA United States  
I knew Colin Crabbe when he was with Christie's International Car Auction held on the Pebble Beach grounds following the Concours ;d Elegance. Crabbe shared his stories and when I saw the book it was printed it  was a must have. Well written and a delightful. A perfect book for car enthusiasts.
