Skaifey: Life in the Fast Lane free pdf He is the most successful driver in Australian motorsport history. One of the icons of the sport, ultimately a Holden hero after starting his career with Nissan: but there is much more to Mark Skaife than just that. Move past the numbers - more touring car round wins than any other driver, equal to the best in touring car titles, five Bathurst wins, three Australian Drivers' Championships and numerous other accolades - and you'll find a driver with a deeply entrenched popularity in the sport. This is Mark's story in his own words, from before the time the motorsport bug first bit to the final days of his time with HRT and the desire to keep racing at Bathurst. He talks about the level of commitment he put in to become the very best while some of those around him tell how this changed the face of the sport in Australia. Find out what motivated him to dominate. How teams he was involved with twice forced the rules to be changed to give others a chance. What he loved about the sport and what he misses today. But also discover the other Mark Skaife. An accomplished businessman with runs on the board, a family man devoted to his three children, a road safety advocate and much more.
