George Harrison loved cars for music. He watched sports car races and the British Grand Prix at Aintree. The future Beatle even wrote to the British Racing Motors team, who sent him photos of the latest models.

In the 1960s, George befriended all internationally renowned racing drivers. He later became close friends with Jackie Stewart, who took him behind the scenes of the racing car world.
