Formula 1 In The Deadly Years

10 posts in this topic

Hi everyone! My name is Richard Melville. I am a former racing driver. I drove GT cars in Europe in early sixties, Formula Supervees and Atlantic in the States and Canada, and finally in New Zealand in the mid-seventies. I often look around to find a good novel about motor-racing but have never been able to find one. So, I decided to write one and called it: Grand Prix: Formula One in the deadly years. The novel is about Formula 1 motor-racing driver in the deadly years of the 1970s. This is what people say about the book so far:

"Over the years I have tried to find a good Formula 1 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

Appreciate your time.

This got my interest for a few minutes. I can speed read, so I had a scan of the excerpt.

I am afraid you lost me when the racing driver had it away with the fat chick. "Will very slowly slid his organ up and

down her vagina, and between the cheeks of her fat bottom."

I am well aware that some racing drivers are successful with the ladies, but really?

I thought this would be about motor-racing, soft porn is not my idea of a good read, particularly when it masquerades as a serious novel.

What can I say? That's the way it was. You didn't hear the half of it.

I think you miss my point.

I am not disputing what happened, I am disputing that a book about motorsport needs to have such trash in it.

Whatever, your view on what constitutes a novel and mine clearly differ.

What I will say is that if I bought this book it was because the sex scene made me and my wife literally weep with laughter, and I'd only be looking for similar scenes, and I'm pretty sure that's not your intention.

I truly wish you all the best and I hope I'm not offending you at all, but I would say a serious novel set in the world of motor racing probably shouldn't have those few pages included. I'd hazard a guess that there are more sex scenes in the book?

Thanks, Jem, I think that the OP was under the delusion that you liked the prose. I did not laugh, but I probably would after I stopped gagging.

Not really, but I could tell you stories that would make your hair curl. Sex and racing went hand in hand. You couldn't escape it.

I would like to read those stories if they are written in the same way as the last one!
