John Parry Thomas, Robin Jac Edwards, Tom Pryce a Gwyndaf Evans ... four of the fastest Welshmen on wheels. Read the story of their exciting lives, and learn how motobikes and rally and racing cars have changed through the years.
Parry Thomas’ aim was to create the fastest car in the world. But would his car, Babs, be good enough to beat the world record?
Why did many Welsh-speakers follow Robin Jac and his motorbike to the Isle of Man between 1934 and 1950?
Tom Pryce dreamed of motor racing. Would he be good enough to beat the best drivers of the early 1970s – and what happened at the start of his Formula 1 career?
How did Gwyndaf Evans become one of the best rally drivers in Britain between 1990 and 2010?
