Paul Frère #2# The Story of a Journalist and Racing Car Driver

by Serge Dubois

For Paul Frère the job of a journalist went beyond the simple need to inform. He had a never-ending thirst for knowledge that he analysed and digested, and then transmitted in a refined and understandable form to readers and listeners who were searching for information.

The car has always been a means of transport, a vehicle for dreams and a way of affirming oneself socially and/or sportingly.

The lessons that Paul drew from his immense experience of the car as a driver and journalist must have a symbolic value.

With the help of an exceptional selection of photographs this great man comes vividly to life in this book peppered with many tributes by his contemporaries, tinged with humour and emotions, and capped by exciting accounts of the races of the era recounted by the author.
