About Peter

Peter Crawley was born in London in 1956. He was educated at Cranleigh School in England and at the Goethe Institut Freiburg-im-Breisgau in Germany, and spent much of his youth in Germany, Austria, France and Corsica.

Upon leaving full-time education and after a short period in the army, he worked in Stuttgart, Germany, as a translator and on luxury motor-yachts around the Côte d’Azur and the Northern Mediterranean.

In the late 1970s he sailed a fifty foot ketch from Spain to St Vincent and the Grenadines and lived on the island of Bequia for six months.

In the early 80s, after further travels, he started his own business dealing in contemporary and classic Mercedes-Benz in London’s West End.

Through the 1990s he raced historic sports cars and formula single-seaters at home and abroad.

Peter Crawley is a former transatlantic yachtsman and historic motor racing pilot. His interests include his family, his research, writing and skiing. He lives in Chertsey, Surrey, with his wife, Carol. They have three daughters.
