Richard Jenkins has been involved in motor racing research for over 20 years. The first outlet for his work was the website oldracingcars.com, where his ‘Where Are They Now?’ section presents several thousand profiles of racing drivers.
His first book, Richie Ginther: Motor Racing’s Free Thinker, was published to universal praise in 2020, with many reviewers highlighting his meticulous research and engaging narrative. Remarkably for a début author, this book won the Royal Automobile Club Motoring Book of the Year Award. Following his second biography, Mike Spence: Out of the Shadows, he has turned his attention to the history of a team rather than a man. He lives in Hertfordshire with his wife and three children.
