An autobiography detailing the history of a road and racing car manufacturer in the Fens has been released. 

‘An Autobiographical History of Tiger Sportscars’, written by Jim Dudley, highlights the development of Tiger Racing in Wisbech, as well as Jim’s childhood before the business was formed in 1989. 

“I was born in Bexleyheath, Kent and the book starts from when I was around three-years-old; I am 72 now,” Jim said. 

The book includes over 300 photographs of cars, works, club events and history behind the family-run firm, as well as examples of classic restorations.
