Sir Jackie Stewart gears up for city visit

Former world champion racing driver Sir Jackie Stewart is coming to town to sign copies of his autobiography Winning is Not Enough.

He will be at Easons of Donegall Place, Belfast, on August 1 at 5pm to meet his fans and talk about his life as a driver and afterwards as a successful builder of racing cars and in business.

And Sir Jackie is certain to be asked about the controversy surrounding Formula One President Max Mosley's that led to attempts to have him sacked as FIA President.

Scot Stewart, who is a friend of Royalty and outspoken in his search for safety improvements on the Formula 1 circuit, tells the story of his life both on and off the track in his book.

He was world champion three times in his spectacular career during which he won 27 grand prix events.

The man, who was called an artist on the track, retired from racing in 1973 after his close friend, driver Francois Cevert was killed in his last race.

As a constructor with the Stewart-Ford team Sir Jackie scored his first success in 1999 when Johnny Herbert won the European GP in one of his cars.
