Full throttle or nothing - Erich Glavitza


My wild 60s with Jochen Rindt, James Bond and Steve McQueen.

In the 1960s, motorsports got wild on and off the piste. Erich Glavitza - a man with high-octane gasoline in his blood - is trying to gain a foothold in this scene. The Austrian befriended the likes of Jochen Rindt and Jack Brabham, and eventually made a career for himself as a reporter and stuntman for James Bond and Steve McQueen's Le Mans film.

In this work, he tells the stories that others prefer to keep silent: How he and Jochen Rindt gauge the top speed of a Ford Mustang on a sloping autobahn - and almost pay with their lives because of a trailer truck that swerves. How he teaches Bond girl Diana Rigg how to drift in a 400 hp Mercury Cougar. And how Steve McQueen had a pair of lovers and their trailer kidnapped while filming the Le Mans film.

A humorous reader, written with a lot of Austrian charm, which wonderfully reflects the free and carefree attitude to life of the 1960s. Glavitza immerses his readers in a time when sex was still safe and motorsport was still dangerous - and when young guys like McQueen, Rindt and of course the author himself listened more to their hearts than to their heads.
