I am sure Barry will recognise my name and in particular my email bda 1.6, he´ll know what that stands for. My son Ashley bought me his book recently and I have been reading it whilst on a short trip to Spain. I cannot put the bloodly thing down!! Well done Barry it's a great read. Keep in touch and as you always say to me ´keep taking the pills!! Regards for now, Tudor, Wanstead, London.

Dear Barry I have just read your book which was fabulous. Having been a sponsor and mechanic in Hot Rod from the mid 70s to the mid 80s the book bought that whole period back to life for me again. It made me realise it was the happiest time of my life. Thank you for being a big part of the reason that I enjoyed this time so much. Best Regards Steve Walker.

Please pass on to Barry what a great book. Makes a change to read a book with no BS. Please wish him all the best. Thanks, Bernie Allery.

Bought your book at spedeweekend and finished it last night ,compulsive reading and a very good insight into the varied life of one of the greatest racers ever ,thanks for all the memories and hope to see you on track soon. Carl Checkley.

Barry Lee - The Other Side of Winning

My biography of motorsport legend Barry Lee covers his family background, home life, trials and tribulations in school, and the time he spent competing on Horseback, Speedway, Autocross, Rallycross, Rallying, Hotrods, Trucks, Historics and much, much more.
...If it has legs...Barry can ride it!
...If it has wheels...Barry can drive it!
Barry redifines the term "larger than life" and I have worked hard to produce an informative and amusing read that is punctuated by many contributions from Barry ...contributions that are, as requested, presented almost verbatum and, as you will discover, in his 'colourful' vernacular!  Barry not only can 'walk the walk'  but he can 'talk the talk'!

The book contains contributions from the many people Barry worked with and competed alongside or against. These genuine, unsolicited and very lightly edited opinions and memories, provide a very honest, and oft moving insight into his life...and what a life! 
Also included are numerous photographs that furnish the reader with a wonderfully evocative pictorial 'timeline'.
