The submitter is currently “writing” GOD AND FORMULA ONE:
‘BEYOND THE ZONE‘ (THE FASTEST BOOK IN THE WORLD)
Published BEFORE it’s been
A look into the spirituality
of Grand Prix drivers, their “religious” beliefs – what faith means to them and
what part it plays in their successes, their failures… and in their lives.
“I am able to experience God’s
presence on earth. If I go to church, I go on my own and I like to be there
alone. I find more peace that way.”
– Ayrton Senna
* From ‘The Death of Ayrton Senna’ by Richard Williams
(Publisher Viking, Part of the Penguin
Group, first published 1995)
“Ayrton has a small problem. He thinks he can’t kill himself, because he believes in God… and I
think that’s very dangerous for the other drivers.”
– Alain Prost on his great
rival, Ayrton Senna
from ‘FORMULA 1: The Autobiography’
Edited by Gerald Donaldson
(and first published in the UK in 2002 by Wedenfeld and Nicolson).
the great gift, dad.
“There are only three sports: bullfighting, mountain climbing and motor racing; all
the rest are merely games.”
– Ernest Hemingway
“Grand Prix racing is primarily a mental contest… it’s a battle of strength of wills
by the combatants and a magnificent contest, the arena to display and share
unique gifts and talents. Perhaps in this ‘theatre of speed’, F1 is a metaphor
for life itself”

Who says “work”
(writing and publishing and especially writing about the “very serious” subject
of God and spirituality can’t be FUN (great) !!!

I just had this idea a minute ago (just “popped/flew into my little head”), so will write and post up
at Amazon. In the meantime, if anyone is interested in my writings to date on
this “airey-fairey” spiritual manuscript, they can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ve been fascinated by the
overlap between the human mind and spirituality for over two decades… and the
Ultimate Source, God I feel is “leading” me to write and share this
manuscript, yet another “true labour of love” (“Crazy” or
perhaps not!!!). At least I believe so … but then perhaps it’s just me and my
intuition/will/choice. We’ll see!
No matter, so better start
writing then… or as my dear mother used to say “get cracking/weaving”…
