The Paddy Hopkirk Story – A Dash Of The Irish. By: Bill Price with Paddy Hopkirk
Paddy Hopkirk, winner of the 1964 Monte Carlo Rally, is one of Britain’s best-known rally drivers and made the motorsport big time in Mini Coopers. A disarmingly modest man, Paddy originally approached BMC with the plea, I do want to drive cars which are capable of winning rallies outright, even if I’m not.
From winning at 1955 St Patrick’s Day Trial in a VW Beetle to the 1990 Pirelli Classic Marathon won in a Mini Cooper S, his glittering career is described in all its glory, with lots of tales of amusing escapades along the way.
