Niki Lauda My Hero
Niki Lauda My Legend: I never was one for heroes! Probably because I only ever had one, and that was Niki Lauda. I was already a prolific reader by 9 years old and was reading lots about Niki's battle against Emerson Fittipaldi in 1974 and 75. In 1976 when the whole country here in the UK was desperate for James Hunt to win the Championship, I was a little alone in rooting for Lauda. By the time I had read Niki's "To Hell And Back" I had been influenced enough by the Austrian to believe only in myself hence no more heroes. He not only sowed the seeds of my life long interest in fitness and diet (Big cheer for Will Dungle too). He gave me the self belief to do anything I wanted and to ignore the negative influences of society! But now in my 50s I will thank Niki for giving me the life long interest and passion for Motor Racing. Cheers Niki my hero!
