Sunday, November 26, 2017 was the lowest moment of Scott McLaughlin’s racing career – suffering a heartbreaking defeat in the final event of the 2017 Supercars Championship on the streets of Newcastle.
Fast forward to Sunday, November 25, 2018 and McLaughlin erased the pain of that fateful day with his crowning moment, securing his maiden Supercars Championship title in the most thrilling of circumstances.
McLaughlin kept a diary thoughout his road to redemption as he takes you along for the ride in a blow-by-blow account of his past 12 months – from the horror depths of the aftermath of 2017 to the greatest moment of his life, becoming the Champion of 2018.
A true diary of a remarkable year, ‘Road to Redemption’ has been penned by journalist Tim Hodges and was launched in the week before the season opening Adelaide 500 to start the 2019 Championship.
It features contributions from Scott’s legendary team owner, American Roger Penske, his motorsport idol Greg Murphy, AFL superstar and close friend Jack Riewoldt and the woman he credits with helping make his championship dream a reality, mindfulness coach Emma Murray.
“Brilliant piece of work by Scott and his co-author Tim accounting a truly incredible journey. A must read, you’ll love it!
Greg Murphy – Four-time Bathurst champion
“The book is an unusually honest and probing account of his redeeming of his championship triumph last year. Road to Redemption is a great read that is well worth your time and money.”
Mark Fogarty – Editor, Auto Action
“It is a once in a career opportunity – a diary of your first championship. And Scotty has knocked it out of the park. A ripper read.”

“Our only hesitation in recommending that you purchase one copy of Road to Redemption is that, ideally, you’d buy three or four and give them to friends and family at every opportunity. It’s excellent. Buy it now.”
