CRASHED AND BYRNED - 2017 UPDATED BOOK - UNITED KINGDOM & UNITED STATES - INTERNATIONAL

"Forget Senna and Schuey. Tommy Byrne was the best of them all" Eddie Jordan

The 2017 updated version of the book includes extra chapters & photographs. Some of the extra chapters cover the filming of the Crash and Burn documentary, life today and a previous story that couldn't be told at the time of the first release of the book.  

The Crashed and Byrned book is the surreal tale of a poverty-stricken Dundalk kid's rise to become the only racing driver the great Ayrton Senna ever feared - and how it all went wrong from there. For a brief moment Tommy Byrne was arguably the world's greatest driver, the motor racing equivalent of George Best and Muhammad Ali rolled into one - A racer, a thief, a raconteur.This is the story of his improbable escape, his rapid rise and his spectacular and bizarre fall from grace. Peppered with dark humour and a cast of ridiculous characters, it is the antithesis of a fairytale - and it's all true. 

Hold on tight, the tale of Tommy Byrne is quite a ride - from fending for himself as the runt of a big Catholic litter in the '60s, running the gauntlet of the sectarian violence in the '70s, troubling Ayrton Senna and making it to F1 in the '80s, resorting to drugs in the aftermath and driving for a deluded billionaire madman and then gun-toting Mexicans in the '90s. It's raw, passionate, and - with Byrne's ability to tell it like it is - not for the faint-hearted.


You will laugh, you will cringe, you will likely be amazed and quite possibly be in tears! The story really is incredible.
