This is the book that every sports car enthusiast has been waiting for: Hurley Haywood's life story.
From his upbringing in Chicago and Wheaton, Illinois, to his chance meeting with Peter Gregg, Hurley Haywood was destined to drive anything he could get his hands on. Life-long relationships with the Porsche factory team and the Brumos dealership provided unimaginable opportunities for racing and career successes.
With three overall victories at Le Mans, five at the Rolex 24 at Daytona, and two at the 12 Hours of Sebring, Haywood is the world's most successful endurance sports-car racer. In addition, Haywood raced in the International Race of Champions (IROC) four times, the Indianapolis 500, won championships in both IMSA and SCCA, and won dozens of other races during a career spanning more than 43 years.
In addition, he has been head instructor at both the Brumos Driving Experience and the Porsche Driving School, bringing him in contact with countless up-and-coming racers and passionate Porsche enthusiasts.
In HURLEY: From the Beginning! Haywood discusses his racing career, his personal life, cars he's driven, and drivers he's raced with and against. Haywood tells it all, from the beginning.
