This is another plea for Tony Mathews to "do" a book of his cutaway drawings and the stories behind them

Nothing posted for days. Everyone must be, like me, reading Jade Gurss's new book Beast  (which describes the secret 1994 Penske/Ilmor/Mercedes-Benz pushrod engine project).

I finished it a few days ago.  It's excellent.  There must be a reason, though, that neither Mario Ilien nor Roger Penske was interviewed, unless they were and somehow I missed it.

I wish - not released until July 28th in Blighty.

It doesn't help my impatience to peruse the 16 reviews on Amazon.com and find that every single one of them is 5 star.

I know this title is old but I purchased for £3.50 Tom Bower's No Angel. I looked up reviews on amazon and saw the mixture of reviews it had. Looked at Richard Williams review for the guardian and saw his list of so all teeth grinding errors then looked through the index and found that the book has it seems been updated and all errors corrected. This is a paperback copy.

Hello from Champaign Illinois where I will launch my revised early Corvette history today.  It covers the C1 through C3 models in more than 700 pages and almost 1000 images. There's a lot to tell with all the wild dream cars and prototypes that underpinned the excitement of the Mitchell/Duntov era. 

 

The new book takes advantage of all the knowledge gained since the first book was published in the 1970s. I found lots of fresh info in the GM archives and in my own files an interview with Mauri Rose that I carried out many years ago that reveals his major role in creation of the first Corvettes.

 

Have a look on the Bentley website at www.bentleypublishers.com.  

 

All my best to all,

 

Karl L.

I just acquired a copy of Cutaway, The Automotive Art of David Kimble, by David Kimble and Chris Endres, published by CarTech in 2010, ISBN 9781934709849, and I'd like to find another copy for a friend. The book is not listed on Amazon or Abe Books. My copy is number 237 of 1,000, all of which were signed by David Kimble. Anyone know anything about it?

I understand Peter Robinson's new book "Memory Lanes: The Early Years" is on schedule for some time in July. This covers the "Motoring News" Rally Championship from 1966 to 1969. (and yes, the set from 1973 back to the start of it will eventually be completed for 1961 to 65 - the years before many of us were "into" it -  with "Memory Lanes: The Beginning" as working title).

On Saturday picked up the latest Quentin Spurring Le Mans. 1990-99 from Goodwood FoS. Very nice photos and the usual great text and tables to go with it all. Although bibliography is a lot smaller from this decade than previous ones.

I did a search but couldn't come up with any results. Has anyone mentioned the book "Motor Binder" by Roy Spencer? It's a very nice 320pg soft back book of photos of American racing in the late 1950s. The book is land-scape format and the pages are about 1" shorter than A4. There is usually a full page photo on the right hand page and comprehensive caption on the left page. There are a few double page spreads and also some colour. Roy Spencer's father, Bev, was a keen racer in the late 50's/ early 60s owning a Lotus 19, Cooper Buick, Ferrari TR, Maserati 151 and a couple of 250 GTOs. The photos are wonderful and I enjoyed the American angle, looking at cars and drivers I know very little about. There's more information here; www.motorbinder.com (usual disclamers apply)

A few years ago I had my copy of Bernie Ecclestone's biography, written by Susan Watkins, signed by Mr. E. himself, who then told me: "Quite a nice book, this is, but Bower's book reveals more". Having read both, I agree.

I recently received a copy of Mike Martin's USRRC : A Record of the United States Road Racing Championship 1963-1968 and thought it was worth a few brief scribbles and first impressions.

 

First of all, this book is a large, substantial volume at 12.5" x 9.5", 344 pages, what feels like four+ pounds and comes dust jacketed in a nice, shiny blue box. Sorry, you'll have to do the metric conversions. It gives an overall impression of quality, easily on a par with books from well established specialist automotive publishers. Pages are nice and thick, and the typeface is crisp and appealing. Thankfully, no sepia toned pages here! Very impressive for a self-published effort.

 

The chapters are arranged chronologically. Each has an introduction which nicely sets the stage for the upcoming racing season, followed by individual race reports and results. Here is where Martin's book separates itself from many of its ilk. These reports are a genuine treat to read since they are frequently spiced with small anecdotes and quotes from participants and drivers, giving the reader a feel of actually having been at the race. Many well-painted word pictures here and most definitely not the usual dull statistical reportage which often inhabits such scholarly tomes.

 

Photo selection and variety really help make the book and, while there are perhaps a few grainy shots here and there that didn't lend themselves well to enlargement, I feel their inclusion was absolutely worthwhile in conveying the story. Page layout is quite attractive too and most, if not all, program covers occupy a well-deserved full page. Appendices include driver/manufacturer charts and course maps & information. There is also an index of drivers and circuits.

 

Mike Martin has an enthusiastic, engaging writing style and demonstrates an obvious passion for the series. While I am hardly an expert on the subject, the author has clearly spent an enormous amount of time and effort to produce what must be the authoritative account of this important era in auto racing history.

 

The USRRC has long deserved a book (any book) to chronicle its history. This one does it proper justice. For anyone with even a passing interest in this era, I believe it's worth serious consideration. Not cheap, but one often gets what one pays for.

 

A real treat.

 

  

Ditto to that...

 

I got my copy at the Pacific Northwest Historics at Pacific Raceways, Kent, Washington…recommended !  Well done, Mike !

Mike Martin (left) and me…Mike's taking the tent down on the Friday.
 
Don Jensen was there and signed a photo in the book of him in the Cheetah at Riverside in 1964.  He told me "I didn't have a proper driver suit, just a flight suit"  The Cheetah, hot to drive anyways, was more so at Riverside in a flight suit.  Eventually, he pitted, fell out, and asked "Anybody else want to drive this car?"

Mike will be at the Hawk event at Road America next weekend. He will have books to sign and sell. If you are at the event, stop by and see him! Better yet, buy a book!

 

(While you are at it, stop by the track store and pick up a copy of my photo history of Road America, Road America, Celebrating Fifty Years of Road Racing. The book came out in 2005 and is long out of print, but they do have a few copies left.)

A message received from Simon Moore.  I think the Book of the Year is on its way.

 

Dear All
 
My book on the 1923-1951 Grand Prix Alfas is finally at the printers in Singapore and the proofs have been approved. Some details are attached and the book should be available in late September, although I will have flown in a few copies for the Goodwood Revival to promote it there. Please pass this E mail on to your friends!
 
As you may know, I financed the book myself so I am hoping to sell as many as possible directly to you as customers rather than through wholesalers or retailers who take a significant margin.
 
If you are interested, please E mail me at gpalfabook@gmail.com. I intend to deliver as many books as possible to UK addresses myself (when I can also sign them) and I will also be making a trip to France, Italy, Switzerland and the Benelux in early October to deliver copies.
 
Preferred payment is via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) in all major currencies (I will provide bank account details) or by cheque on a UK bank in pounds or on a French bank in Euros.
 
Best wishes
 
Simon

I'm not a Kindle user - I love the feel of a traditional book - but I was interested to see that David Gordon's excellent Chevron - The Derek Bennett Story is now available in electronic form. Is David now based in Texas? The small Houston-based publisher (two books only at the moment, apparently) bears initials that could conceivably be David's.  Anyway, it's available on Amazon:

It is exhibited here:

 

http://www.saechsisc...4/kur_14_10.htm

 

and the other here:

 

https://ps-speicher.de/en/index.php

 

Prof. Kirchberg (the Auto Union authority) has just published a book on these two cars..

 

They were made in Germany  after WW2 for Russia  as a reparation duty.

 

One of the cars was in Donington, wrongly labeled as Auto Union...

 

Here the link to book

Thanks for the reminder, Michael! Just ordered a copy too. If you want the concise version, the thread is summarised on 8W - check the Auto Union section.

 

For anyone else in the UK who wants a copy of the book it can be ordered via Amazon UK or Wordery.com for delivery direct from Germany for just over £20. Wordery are 2p cheaper ...

Vitesse, that's  almost cheaper than in Germany (29,90 Euros postage-free). A shame they didn't an English version too...maybe another publisher jumps the bandwaggon??

 

Thanks for 8W-link!!

It actually is cheaper! I thought it was perhaps because there's 7% VAT on books in Germany, but that would only take the price down to €27.95, which is currently £22.13. Amazon and Wordery must both work on pretty slim margins - although it's interesting to note that Wordery sell via both Amazon Marketplace and eBay as well as their own site. All at different prices!

In Germany we have PREISBINDUNG (fixed prices) on books. The only way to avoid this for a dealer is to 'remainder' new books (literally bump a corner!!).Then he is free to make any price!!

But in UK /USA you can make your price by competition...

 

I ordered some expensive German books via UK and saved up to 25%...

On BMW 328:

 

for the 1940 (quasi) Mille Miglia BMW entered 5 cars.One of these was a slipstream coupe by aerodynamist Wunibald Kamm.It didn't made the finish in Brescia.

 

This car was raced after WW2 and  finally crashed in 1952.

 

For the MM revival BMW has recreated a Kammcoupe. You can read about this car in Classic and Sportscars June 2014 (Mick Walsh).

 

Better still:

 

http://www.amazon.co...=bmw 328 legend

 

This is an English text-book on the racing BMW 328s. Especially the recreation of the Kamm coupe and BEST of all: some period colour photos from 1940, which were found recently, are shown here too.

 

Best regards Michael

I was interested to see the reference to the book on ATS and so idly looked at the sample pages offered if you hit the photo of the cover of the book.

 

I see that the authors claim in their opening chapter  that one of the people to finance the ATS project was  "Jaime Patiz Ortino". No such person exists. The man who helped finance the project was Jaime Ortiz Patino  one of the heirs to the Bolivian tin mining fortune. With such accuracy in the opening chapter I fear for the rest of the book.

I bought the Italian edition of the ATS book some time ago.  I wouldn't claim to be able to judge the accuracy of the information in book, but at least in the Italian edition the name of Jaime Ortiz Patino is correctly spelled.

I have both..the English version is a 'print on demand softbound-book', done (in my case) by amazon.de (Leipzig). Awfully layouted, the photos grainy. Whereas the Italian version is properly printed.Maybe the translation is a google-based one. In the impressum a translaotor is mentioned!!

 

At least the author has done interviews with people ,who were involved with ATS.

 

I agree there is room for a proper book. But I know only of snippets in other books on Formula 1 ATSs, and an AQ-article on the ATS 2500....

My copy of the new book Lancia and De Virgilio by Geoffrey Goldberg, just arrived, and it's sensationally good! De Virgilio was the engineer who devised a clever way to make the V6 engine run smoothly in the early 1950s, and although much of the book is dedicated to design and engineering, his personal life receives equal attention. The period photographs, engineering drawings, sketches, and other illustrations, many from the family archives, make the book come alive. The publisher, David Bull, did his usual fine job, with quality design and printing. I think the book is being introduced at Monterey this week, but it can be ordered directly from Bull Publishing; see http://www.bullpubli....asp?itemid=172

 

Frank (full disclosure: I edited the book.)

Worth a look.

I received the GT40 and the Ferrari 250 GTO owners manuals a few days ago from Amazon.uk. I don't think these are as good as the series that Ian Bamsey did a few years ago but I like them. I like car stuff more than I like people stuff.

Stan, which Bamsey titles do you mean exactly? I don't know of specific titles on the GTO and GT40 by Bamsey?

 

Thanks Michael
