He co-authored Oz and James’s Big Wine Adventure (2006), which is based on the TV series of the same name, and he is the author of the book May on Motors (2006), which is a compilation of his published essays. The final book by automotive author L. J. K. Setright, Long Lane with Turnings, was released in September 2006, and he authored the afterword for it.

Jeremy Clarkson said that the original producers of Top Gear had chosen to replace him with May in 1999, yet they felt unsatisfied with May as he was shortly sacked in 2000. May served as a co-presenter of the show for a brief period of time in 1999.
