‘The Billionaire and the Mechanic’

It’s the story of how the billionaire, Larry Ellison, brought the America’s Cup to San Francisco through his friendship with a car mechanic. “It’s non-fiction that reads like a novel.”

And this is just the story of how he first won the Cup, and that’s almost the material for a film.

As if history’s greatest ever sporting comeback—the dramatic story, that finally ended this morning, of how the Cup was held by the same team—isn’t material enough on its own!
