Summary
Murray was best known as the rally driver who in 1954 won the REDEX Round Australia Reliability Trial without the loss of a single point; but Jack's sporting interests and achievements were eclectic and far-ranging. In his own words, at different times throughout his life he was 'engaged in various sports with various successes'. Jack even raced a bathtub once, plug in. Jack Murray died in 1983. Encounters with those who met him, knew him and loved him now grow fewer and fewer, as the years pass and the Reliability Trials of the 1950s drift into Australian history and folklore. Jack's personal and non-public life, showing the man behind the derring-do, has never been fully explored or written about. Here for the first time is Murray's full story as told by his son Phil Murray. Son of the legendary 'Gelignite' Jack Murray, Phil has inherited his father's genes when it comes to adventure, seeking personal challenges and embracing all life has to offer. Just as his father did, Phil believes life is best lived following some pretty simple instructions: Don't take yourself too seriously. Thus Phil is the perfect person to display to the world a man whom many thought they knew, but who was much more complicated and talented than his racing exploits would lead us to believe
