seminal film 'Grand Prix the Killer Years', a shocking insight into
when Grand Prix was out of control, is to be released as a book.
Matthews, the director and producer of the original film and editor of
the book says 'when we made 'Killer Years', most of the amazing
interviews had to be left out, which I found very frustrating. When you
make a film you only end up using about 3% of the material, the rest
ends up on the cutting room floor. It's hard to decide what to keep. So
here we share with you pretty much all of the interviews as they were
said. There is hardly any editing, if any at all. What we have here is a
record, an important part of sport history, recorded forever.
book 'Grand Prix the Killer Years' is a collection of the original
interview transcripts, taken directly from the Bigger Picture film
tapes. From World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi crying in the car park, to
Sir Jackie Stewart and Jackie Oliver narrowly avoiding death, the
interviews offer a candid insight into the time when a driver being
killed in a Grand Prix had become normal.
many famous drivers including three World Champions, Emerson
Fittipaldi, Sir Jackie Stewart OBE, John Surtees OBE, this fascinating
book is a perfect addition to any collection and a must read for anyone
who has seen the film or loves Grand Prix
