About the author
Adrian Streather was born on Christmas Day 1958 - a less than successful racing driver of Ford Escorts many decades ago - he still has friends who actually drove the original Ford GT in competition. Listening to their stories created the desire to write about the Ford GT. However, it was driving the new Ford GT iteration on a European road trip which really inspired this book. Adrian lives in Adelaide South Australia, with his wife Gail. The print version of this Ford GT eBook was Adrian’s fourth book ten years ago, but his book list now sits in the thirties.
