Blue Lemon - Rallying for the Buzz by Phillip Haslam

Blue Lemon is the story of Phillip and Yvonne Haslam's quantum leap from retirement to world travellers.

"This is the story of how Yvonne and I converted an easy gentle retirement plan into a somewhat more hectic way of life that has resulted in us introducing ourselves into the fascinating world of classic cars, the outcome of which has seen us travel from the leafy glades of Derbyshire, across deserts, through forests, over almost every major mountain range in the world and across continents.

"We have seen great sights, met wonderful people and been places that, only a few years ago, we didn't even know existed. We started out as rank amateurs, and I am delighted to confirm that we have retained that status."

Phillip Haslam

The pair have competed in over 100 rallies though 58 countries with over 200,000 miles always meticulously recording and photographing their progress. The book is packed with stories and amazing pictures from these adventures.

So why the name? You'll have to buy the book and find out!

Phillip's previous book, chronicling the dynamic duo's exploits on the infamous Peking to Paris Motor Challenge.

"If you are interested in old cars and people doing exciting (or is it foolhardy ?) things with them, this book is not to be missed. It is an account by a retired couple, not terribly mechanically minded, who bought an old Chevrolet and entered the 2007 Peking to Paris rally.

"The preparation of the car was an adventure in itself and shows just how persistent Philip Haslam is, but the rally itself was a test of car and occupants of the most strenuous nature..."
