The story of JACKIE STEWART is a tale of inspiration and owe. Born in Scotland, Stewart overcame severe reading difficulties and modest roots by embarking on a life that made the most of his extraordinary eyesight reflexes and nerve to deliver three Formula One drivers' world championship crowns on the track, an unrivalled reputation as a campaigner for safety and common sense off it and a family brand name that made him as successful in business as in sport when his racing career came to an end. A fastidious perfectionist and someone who loves life to the full, Jackie Stewart has always been more than a motor racing man. He is a one-man industry, a workaholic, a charmer, a tough and demanding man who has made friends at all levels of society, including the Royal Family, but who has shown grace under pressure not least when his son Paul faced his fight with cancer. Always competing, Jackie Stewart has never resisted a challenge of a cause.
