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.

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.

Donald Campbell on the Riviera – and out-lasting them both

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



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 17 th 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 Force Association. He has

been married to Anne for over 50 years and lives in Gloucestershire.
