Grand Prix of Gibraltar [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
Sir Peter Ustinov's 1958 spoof grand prix commentary finally makes it to CD, having been available on cassette since 1991. Recorded for Riverside Records, Ustinov does all the voices and engine noises of this imaginary event set in Gibraltar, with some gloriously politically incorrect national stereotypes that wouldn't seem out of place on today's GP grid. Frequently referred to in motoring magazines on both sides of the Atlantic, particularly by Nigel Roebuck, the eminent Grand Prix editor of Autosport and Autoweek and contributor to Motor Sport. Roebuck has written the sleeve notes for this reissue, based on a new interview with Sir Peter Ustinov.
