The Last Great Race

The Last Great Race

Author Mark Morey tells the story of Achille Varzi: one of the most successful sportsman of the 1930s; hero to his followers; worshipped by the women in his life; driven to succeed. A passionate affair, unbearable humiliation after one of his greatest victories, and nearly being killed in a freak accident all lead to a terrible drug addiction. Varzi was lucky to survive; eventually being rescued by his family and by his ever faithful Norma. Told partly through the eyes of Varzi and partly by fictional Italian-Australian journalist Paul Bassi, readers follow the many triumphs and tragedies of Varzi's life: his downfall when at the height of his success during the golden era of motor racing, his recovery, his marriage, and his return to racing once more, winning the first-ever Formula One race.

The Last Great Race is a fictionalised account of a real-life story that seems too incredible to be true, only it is.

What They Are Saying About The Last Great Race

It has a wonderful cast of characters, array of nationalities, wonderful places and the cars are so sensual. Even a non-racing enthusiast can follow the action and get caught up in it. Bravo! – Rhonda Swayda. Author.

I recommend The Last Great Race for anyone looking for a great book, regardless of their feelings about car sports, because this book is SO MUCH MORE than that – Liz Gavin. Author.

This novel is perfect for fans of Formula One but also for those who love a well-written romance. From the story of Varzi you can learn to never give up, fighting to achieve your dreams – Veronica Marzini. Reviewer.
