Canadian Premier of Crash and Burn Comes to Toronto’s Regent Theatre April 7 And 8

For a brief moment in the early 1980s, Tommy Byrne was arguably the world’s greatest driver – the motor racing equivalent of George Best and Muhammad Ali rolled into one. His rise was meteoric and his fall spectacular. Crash and Burn is his story – how he became motor racing’s bad boy, who rose from humble beginnings in Dundalk, Ireland to be one of the hottest prospects of early 1980s Formula 1, mentioned in the same breath as Ayrton Senna, and how it all went wrong.
