Norman Conquest: A remarkable, high-flying life in motoring and aviation (Hardback) - ‘This book has certainly reaffirmed to me that, with belief in our own abilities and help from kindred spirits, you can get a quart into life’s pint pot’ - Alain De Cadenet

Motoring and aviation enthusiast Vic Norman has led a remarkable life. A trip to the 1954 British Grand Prix left an indelible mark, and he went on to own some of the most coveted road and racing cars of all time. He also founded Rosso Racing, which restored and prepared competition Ferraris, but in the early 1980s his passion for aeroplanes took over and he became one of the UK’s top aerobatic pilots.

Norman Conquest is an honest, entertaining and personal memoir that covers everything from his early life as the son of a successful businessman, to international adventures with his AeroSuperBatics team, and his current work for the RAF Association and 614 Squadron.

  • Full story of his early life, including water-skiing with Stirling Moss and Donald Campbell on the Riviera – and out-lasting them both
  • Memories of the great cars that he has owned, from AC Cobra and Jaguar D-type to Maserati 250F and Ferrari 250 GTO
  • The story behind setting up the famous AeroSuperBatics team and travelling the world to give air displays
  • Flying with the Red Arrows and setting wingwalking world records
  • How he played a key role in the recording of the Pink Floyd album The Final Cut
  • Foreword by Alain de Cadenet and Afterword by Jeremy Clarkson 

The Author: Vic Norman started his life-long passion for all things mechanical from an early age, taking the lawnmower to pieces and working out how to get it going again. A go-kart started his love of racing and he went on to own a variety of vintage and modern cars and motorbikes. Vic started flying on his 17th birthday and has gone on to become one of the UK’s most experienced display pilots. He is a Display Aviation Examiner for the Civil Aviation Authority, an Honorary Air Commodore Royal Air Force Reservist for 614 Squadron Cardiff and Glamorgan and an Ambassador of the Royal Air Forces Association.
