Product description

300kph on an untested, experimental motorcycle on scorching salt flats could be considered a perfect way to kill yourself. But for Paul Carter, attempting to be the fastest man on a bio-fulled motorbike and break the land speed record is just something he has to do. And it's a bumpy ride. RIDE LIKE HELL AND YOU'LL GET THERE follows Paul and his mates as he's plagued by cancellations, disastrous thunderstorms, lost keys and broken limbs following a few benders. Whether playing the entrepreneur and travelling the world, or dealing with life's highs and lows like the birth of a son or the loss of his father in England, Paul Carter is still the nicest 'alpha male' you'll ever meet and indisputably the funniest.

Review quote

PRAISE FOR PAUL CARTER 'A torrent of tall tales from a life less ordinary.' --Sunday Telegraph 'Carter is a kind of modern day Indiana Jones... a natural storyteller.' --Sunday Tasmanian 'This is one of the most split-my-sides laughing memoirs I think I have ever read... that blows along like the North Sea.' --Northern Star 'Great two-fisted writing from the far side of hell.' --John Birmingham, author 'Literary black gold... Horrifying and hilarious.' --Sun Herald 'The Andy McNab of the oilfields rides again.' --Telegraph
