   schema:description "The third generation Croatian boy from West Auckland drove his dreams to international success‚ but never forgot where he came from. He is a double winner of the World Touring Car Cup title‚ and is known on both sides of the Tasman as ′the Rat′‚ and with abiding affection and respect as an honest sportsman who drives hard and fast. Along the way he’s competed with and for some of the best racers in the world‚ from Dick Johnson and Peter Brock to Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill‚ but it hasn’t been a free ride. He’s had his share of drama − high-speed accidents and crippling injuries‚ triumphs and tragedies‚ and now looks back on a career that has taken him to the top in the sport he loves. Sandy Myhre tells his remarkable story‚ from his early days racing motor cross‚ moving into single−seaters and competing against Kiwi icons like Kenny Smith‚ racing in England and the USA‚ and continuing through to touring cars where he dominated the European stage before joining Australian V8 Supercars. For the first time‚ Paul talks candidly about the inner politics of motor racing around the world‚ of British Touring Cars and of V8 Supercars‚ and of his sudden split with Team Kiwi Racing."@en ;
