Quick Overview

From Melbourne to Monza, 'The Pits' humanizes the mechanized world of elite motor racing, revealing the reality behind the stories that make the headlines. It depicts the full throttle experience of watching the race from the pit lane.


With a maximum of 24 drivers, 12 teams and 17 races per year, the Grand Prix championship is a small, tightly-controlled world in which sponsors - including track owners, tobacco advertisers and automobile multinationals - battle for maximum exposure. In The Pits, ITV F1 presenter Beverley Turner examines closely the murkier aspects of the sport, including: how venues are chosen (and why they are dropped); the (often) extraordinary power of sponsors and the controversial rule changes that deliver more audience-friendly races. She also explains precisely why, because of the way access to F1 is restricted, no book of this kind has ever been written before. Beverley Turner draws on original interviews throughout the Formula 1 fraternity - from top drivers to mechanics and team bosses - and her own experiences as a broadcast journalist to produce a sensational expose of the world's most high-profile capitalist jamboree. After reading this no-holds-barred description of life in the pits, elite motor racing will never seem the same again.
