David Coulthard: The Flying Scotsman

David Coulthard: The Flying Scotsman

by JimDunn (Author)


This title tells the story of the Formula 1 driver, David Coulthard, from his early karting days to the 1997 season driving for McLaren. It describes the trials and triumphs of Coulthard's debut seasons, from his entry into Formula 1 racing, first as a test driver for Williams, to his promotion to race driver following Ayrton Senna's death, to his maiden win for McLaren at the 1997 season-opener in Melbourne. The book also includes: the influence on Coulthard of Scottish racing legends Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart and Innes Ireland; how he gave up a career in the family road haulage business to become a racer; his experiences of karting, Formula Ford 1600, Formula Vauxhall Lotus, Formula 3 and Formula 3000; and his move to McLaren in 1996 as it struggled to become competitive again.
