We all have dreams of what we want to do and who we want to become. Many of us eventually decide it is too late; we have missed our chances. But is it ever really too late to try?

Don Simpson does not think so. In his memoir, Too Old for Motor Racing, he tells the story of how he became a race car driver at the age of sixty-two. Simpson is an ordinary man from a regular family; he spent his early years living on a council estate in Liverpool, UK. He attended the school at the end of his street, leaving as soon as he could. As a young man with a young family, he could not indulge in his passion for motor racing except as a spectator; racing was simply too expensive and risky for someone with a family to take care of. Later in life, however, Simpson discovered limits are almost always imagined, not real. At the age of sixty-two, he began to race.

Although your passion may be for something other than motor racing, this memoir seeks to inspire you to go after your dreams, because it is never too late to try.

GOD, RACING AND WRITING (BOOK THREE) "A/My Holy Trinity"* "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience." - Pierre Teilhard de Chardin "All traditions of culture and faith have tales of people breaking out of their limited viewpoint, suddenly seeing the universe in crystal clarity, as if they've unlocked the secret of life itself." This power is far more internal and integral to every living being, accessible to everyone, 'believer' or not." - fine writing by Clyde Brolin in his fascinating book OVERDRIVE; FORMULA ONE IN THE ZONE' Web site: www.overdrivef1.com " God is a 'petrol-head', but He/She/It does have a sense of humour." - Thoughts of my good micro-biologist and dentist friend, Andy "Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly." - Franz Kafka "Racing is a metaphor for life itself." -c "The Zone could simply be a gateway to the divine, one of God's methods of reminding us of His - and our - glorious power. Omnipresence means that power must be everywhere, everytime. Including the racetracks. Including today." - "People talk about the Zone as a very outward thing, but it's not". It's very spiritual. To me, the Zone is when you're operating at the intuitive level. You're not thinking about it, so it happens naturally. You're at the top of your job. You've got your emotions controlled, your energy is channelled and you're just doing it. That's the Zone. You're just doing it." from www.overdrivef1.com And all these thoughts inspired me to write this one," my "own book" thanks Clyde "Look across all sport and observe the truly great. All had this zest for combat, this taste for being truly tested. All wished to explore (and even expand) the limits of their own possibilities. Time after time we are forced to wonder why one great talent succeeds and another still greater talent falls short? The reason is not mere "the will to win". Rather it is the will to be tested at the very highest level. It is the ability to not only dwell on the far edge of sporting possibility, but to hold one's balanceand to relish the proximity of the void." THE WILL TO WIN "To drive fearlessly to win is to win another race - the race against fear - (trophies themselves are but symbols to delight old age); To challenge your fellow man in peaceful pursuit Of courage is the epitome of courage; To lose the race with grace is the embodiment of grace itself. To triumph is to achieve glory But glory is empty without the overthrow of fear, the acquisition Of courage, of grace - For the possession of these is the true glory. Good breeding is displayed in the ability to lose well And is primarily engendered by respect: Respect is created by the acknowledgement not of the other man's shortcomings or faults But essentially the acknowledgement of his virtues - For without virtue What is man - be he on the track challenging the fates, Or on a bed of sleep? "I see the human being is an incredible machine, totally undiscovered in many ways. Every one of us has a hidden tank of energy that comes out when it is needed." - Alex Zanardi Whilst this book focusses on sport (and especially F1 motor racing) , writing and spirituality, everyone on the planet has some, their own Everest to climb. "The untapped potential in every human being is limitless: we are perfectly capable of producing, all by ourselves, true magic." "Our talents are our gifts from God, but what we do with them is our gift to God." And It's up to each one of us to find, then access the magic within. That's 'true winning in the game/race of life'.
