Richard Jenkins is a motorsport enthusiast who has a keen interest in what happened to racers after they left the sport. Inspired by a book released in 1966 about former British soccer players titled Where Are They Now?, authored by Pringle and Fissler, Richard decided to trace past racecar drivers. In 2014, he was approached by the widow of racer Richie Ginther and in 2020, his book titled Richie Ginther: Motor Racing’s Free Thinker was published. With memories from his family, friends and fellow racers, this biography is also packed, after meticulous research, with an abundance of quotes from Richie himself to create as thorough and as deeply personal life story about Richie as possible.
