THE SPIRITUAL PATH: “THE WAY” (Beyond the Zone)
The Place of God and faith in the lives of some past and present Grand Prix drivers
Just had the idea today (7 am 14th December 2011, then “revisited” today 1st March 2013), so here it is. A “work, a labour of love” in progress. I’ll write, keep adding to these thoughts and upload to Amazon as I go along.
The idea for this e-book came from (and was inspired by) my research and study into the fascinating book ‘OVERDRIVE: FORMULA ONE IN THE ZONE’ by Clyde Brolin, as well as my own contemplations of the spiritual journey over the years.

This unique book looking into the minds of Grand Prix drivers is published by Vatersay Books (first published Feb 2010)
“The Zone could simply be a gateway to the divine, one of God’s methods of reminding us of His – and our – glorious power. Omnipresence means that power must be everywhere, everytime. Including the racetracks. Including today.”
– fine and powerful writing from Clyde Brolin in his great book ‘Overdrive: Formula One in the Zone’
This is my favourite and sums up my message, my ‘little’ life…in trying, striving in some small way to break down barriers between people around the globe.
“I had a good chance to meet a yogi who was so spiritual and happy all the time. I wondered how he managed his thinking and I learned a lot from him. I saw him and I thought, ‘This is the way.’ You believe in a God, but not in a religious way. We human beings like to give him names, whether that is Jesus or whatever else. But my view is that God is ONE, whether it is Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, almost anything, and that he is everywhere. He (or she) has (no gender), colour, no religion, no race, nothing. It’s incredible how close he is to you and to everybody. You just call him (her/It) and he’s there. That’s it, simple.
This is the reality we so often forget.”
– Balbir Singh, former physio-therapist and confidant to Michael Schumacher (and student of psychology).
(With my little additional few words in brackets)
“In the future I hope to write a small book to help someone to find this way. That’s my dream.”
– Balbir Singh,
I’m doing it for you, as well as myself here, Balbir
