The only other one of note:

I'll leave the book and video recommendations (if any) to our Antipodean friends.

I just had a look at the 'comparocar' website, which I hadn't known of, but that just goes to Sergent's site.

There is a video 'Long Weekend at Longford' which is of the 1964 Tasman Series round there.

There are a couple of videos:

Racing with Alec Mildren Part 1 1965-1966 and Part 2 1967-1969.

I have not seen them yet but they have been recommended by another TNFer.

Harder to find will be the Shell Books of New Zealand Motor Racing and the Australian Motor Racing Annuals.

Crikey, I forgot about the Alec Mildren books, as I have both. Yes, they are both very good. Available from here:

The BRM film unit filmed the 1966 series. This appears in most complete form in TSVs BRM Collection - Volume 4 "The Champion V8" , but Duke's The BRM Story volume 4 has slightly different clips from the same source. Both only amount to a few minutes though. Some of the same material also appears in the various other Duke videos covering the 60s.

I'm guessing Doug Nye doesn't have access to this particular BRM resource (i.e. the films made) as we haven't seen it in any of the Motorfilms quarterly.

They are videos not books.

The Mildren book by Barry Green is titled Driven to Succeed. ISBN 0-646-36861-3

And a poor effort, too... particularly if one is after Tasman Cup stuff. There's more here on TNF... much more... check some of the 'On this day...' stuff through January and February. There are two threads, the former probably has a bit more detail.

Oh, yes, there's the David McKay book, Scuderia Veloce... and I guess Forza Amon touches on a bit of it too.
