“This Tour has obviously taken place against the backdrop of terrible events in Nice and we pay our respects once again to those that lost their lives in this terrible event. Of course these events put sport into perspective, but they also show why the values of sport are so important to free society.”

Note with regard to the featured picture (above)

Every visitor to Morumbi cemetry in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the city that is birthplace of Ayrton Senna is greeted with the phrase:  Nada pode me separar do amor de Deus.’ (Nothing can separate me from God’s love).

“You think you have a limit. And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high.”

A Writing Thought: “I want to write the way Gilles Villeneuve drove and power-slid his blood-red Formula One Ferrari… with wild enthusiasm and a sense of abandonment, combined with the artists craft of a Stirling Moss, a Jim Clark, and especially that of the great Ayrton Senna, living on the razor-blade edge of life.”

Beyond the Zone: Formula 1 and Writing

Beyond the Zone: God and The Spiritual Journey

senna-nu11

Have just written the first line in a brand new book ‘In The Zone and Beyond…’

“Rough petrol-head meets arty farty, airey-fairey creative writing type”

My idea of heaven is sitting in the hot New Zealand sun (in summer at least) writing about Formula 1 (the far better days of old) and writing…and thoughts on God (and “the spiritual journey”), of course!

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”
