'His first book 'Full Circle' was one of those reads you could not put down once you'd started it. Rick related stories and events through his life from being a cheeky-chappy looking for sponsors, dare-devil antics and serious scrapes on speedway bikes to FF1600's and beyond - into saloon cars.

It is a very easy read full of surprises and ... did I mention Tom Cruise?'
