Phillippe - If it is not in American (NTSC) format you should be able to play it on a computer with an up to date utility like Windows Media Player, Real Player etc. Most USA DVD players are NTSC only whereas other countries often have multi format players (PAL, NTSC, SECAM). Still a big issue though even if PCs cross the divide.

I thought that the book and the DVD complemented each other perfectly. Some of the footage is wonderful.

I'm just trying to find out when the US/Canada/Caribbean/Latin America publishing dates are... Seems to be some uncertainty at publisher's end at the moment but i'll keep you posted. I'm sure they will provide a DVD suitable for those regions...

Thanks for that link, Terry - I wasn't aware of this new Ecurie Ecosse book. The special Christmas offer of the leather-bound limited editions of both the Ecurie Ecosse book and the Norman Dewis story for £225 - a saving of £85 - is very tempting!

Like most of you, I receive constant e-mails from Amazon, trying to persuade me to buy something or other, but this latest effort has left me bemused, if not almost speechless.

......We've noticed that customers who have purchased or rated Colin Chapman: The Wayward Genius by Mike Lawrence have also purchased Lewis Hamilton: A portrait of Britain's new F1 hero by Andrew van de Burgt.....

Never thought I'd live to see a single sentence containing the names Colin Chapman, Mike Lawrence, Lewis Hamilton and Andrew van de Burght, so congratulations Amazon for thinking outside the box, several miles outside the box in this instance.

Lewis has my total support and well wishes for his future, but I think I would rather have my teeth drilled in preference to reading this publication. I often laugh at my Amazon recommendations.......never mind "thinking outside the box" more a case of "off their trollies" :rotfl:

I agree, I think that the popular press are his worst enemy, but I do rate Lewis Hamilton highly. It's unfortunate that the Amazon recommendation included the word 'Hero' on this of all days. For heaven's sake, the man has never even kicked a ball, let alone died for his country.

Talking of Lady Hamilton, anyone know what on Earth has happened to volume 2 of John Sugden's splendid biography of Lord Nelson? A Dream Of Glory has left me marooned in 1797 for a couple of years since finishing it - a truly wonderful read!

Yes, I too thoroughly enjoyed vol. I of Sugden's Nelson bigraphy, Pete - and have been looking out for vol. II ever since. I remember buying vol. I of Nigel Hamilton's bio of JFK a few years back, and an excellent iconoclastic read it was - but vol. II never materialised as the author declared himself so disillusioned by his subject that he cancelled the project - felt like I'd been sold vol. I under false pretences! Hopefully nothing similar will happen to vol. 2 of Sugden - but in the meantime you could do a lot worse than Roger Knight's masterly 2005 one-volume life of Nelson.

What forthcoming book do you most eagerly anticipate? I'll begin:

Inside Track , which I believe is the working (or perhaps actual) title of the Phil Hill/DCN book.

Which are you most looking forward to?

Greetings from Amazon.co.uk,

We've noticed that customers who have purchased or rated Graham Hill Scrapbook 1929 -1966 (Original Scrapbook) by Philip Porter have also purchased Lewis Hamilton: The Full Story by Mark Hughes. For this reason, you might like to know that Lewis Hamilton: The Full Story is now available.


Well, yessssss .... but I'll wait till it's remaindered thanks.


So about next June then :rolleyes: :p ;)

Here's a new book about IMSA GTP cars:


Posted Image


Inside IMSA's Legendary GTP Race Cars: The Prototype Experience
Author: J. A. Martin and Michael J. Fuller
Publisher: Motorbooks
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0760330697
ISBN-13: 978-0760330692
Hardcover: 256 pages
Length: 9.50 w x 11.00 h
Regular Price: $50.00

Per Motorbooks - available December 4, 2007:

Professional automobile racing has always been dominated by sanctioning bodies whose main goal was to ensure competition. That has meant seeing that cars are well matched--in body shape or chassis/engine combinations or engine size. But what about an all-out competition, in which one teams idea of the fastest race car could be pitted against anothers, regardless of mechanical "parity"? This was what the International Motor Sports Associations (IMSA) Grand Touring Prototypes (GTP) race series was about. The Series ran from 1981 to 1993, and it was one of the most exhilarating racing experiences of all time. This book is the first to profile the amazing machines that resulted from the GTPs flat-out competition among different--and passionate--ideas about what might be the fastest way around a track: the V-12 with its better ground-effect tunnels but higher center of gravity (CG); the flat six with its low CG but severely-restricted ground-effect tunnels; the cars that used fans to suck them down onto the track; and others that employed elaborate wings and air dams. Here are the people behind this engineering free-for-all, the culmination of almost a century of automobile racing experience. And here are eighteen of the most competitive vehicles they designed. Using photography, diagrams, drawings and first-person accounts from the men who built them, Inside IMSAs Legendary GTP Race Cars offers a detailed look at the technology that drove some of the worlds most exciting race cars, the likes of which may never be seen again.

~~~~~~~~~~

Per Amazon - available February 15, 2008:

Book Description
The International Motor Sports Associations (IMSA) Grand Touring Prototypes (GTP) race series was an all-out competition, with one team's idea of the fastest race car pitted against anothers, regardless of mechanical "parity." This book tells the story of the heart-stopping result, and of 18 amazing machines that came out of the GTPs flat-out competition among different--and passionate--ideas about what might be the fastest way around a track. Using photography, diagrams, drawings and first-person accounts from the men who built the cars, the book offers a detailed look at the technology that created some of the worlds most exciting races, the likes of which may never be seen again.

Bjorn, reference the Martin/Wells IMSA GTP/Prototype book.

Have I understood you correctly, you want to know what it's like?

It has 511 pages, hundreds of photos, both colour and b/w, good repro, high quality art paper and well worth buying. The US price was $89.95 in 2000.

Individual chapters feature cars, teams and drivers in Part 1. Part 2 has IMSA GTP results 1981-1993 spread over 190 pages.

I hope this helps.

For those near Brooklands who fancy a day out next Sunday Nov 18th, an added feature of the Military Vehicle Day will be a book sale in the old Press Hut where the Museum Library are disposing of excess and duplicate stock. No idea what's for sale though. Normal Brooklands admission charges apply.

Mike also runs one of the best websites on the recent technical history of sports car racing - http://www.mulsannescorner.com/

The site is full of news, analysis, first-hand accounts from key technical people, and lots of pics of prototypes of the last couple of decades (from the tail end of Group C and GTP to the present, really). He's been working on this book for a while, with (I think) a particular focus on aerodynamics and how they influenced the development of the cars.

Hi Bjørn - the number of pages in Inside IMSA's Legendary GTP Race Cars is given at 256. I don't see a stat anywhere for the number of photos for either book.

Pete Lyon's review of the earlier Prototypes: The History of the IMSA GTP Series

…J.A. Martin chose to focus on the human element in a team-by-team format…

http://web2.roadandt...&article_id=227



Verses Michael J. Fuller's intentions:

I've currently undertaken the co-authoring of a book on the IMSA GTP series with Jim Martin. Jim Martin previously wrote the book "Prototypes" with the late Ken Wells. Prototypes covered similar ground (IMSA GTP), but our new book will concentrate solely on the cars.

I am delighted to report I have just acquired a copy of Tony Adriaensen's 'Weekend Heroes' book on the "good ol' days of American sports car racing". Absolutely outstanding colour photos (almost as good as Phil Hill's :cool: ), very nicely reproduced, and a good yarn to string them all together. I have put my back out today lugging this hefty 700-page tome around, showing it to people. I don't like the all-capital letter typography but that's a personal pecadillo. Only 1,000 numbered copies produced - mine is No 459 - in difficulty contact CorsaResearch BVBA, B-2000 Antwerpen, Belgium or quote ISBN 978-90-80119-73-4 if ordering from a dealer. I promise you won't be disappointed.

After much procrastination over the last few months, earlier today I bought a copy of "1982" by Christopher Hilton. Having flicked through the book, I am not regretting it. High quality stuff, with some sumptuous photographs, and the period newspaper cuttings add to the flavour.

Today I also purchased Eoin Young's book about 1955, and "Racing in The Rain". The latter I understand has received some acclaim.

Whilst I'm here, does anyone know of any Jacky Ickx biographies (in English or otherwise?).

French one "A Batons Rompus", from about 1969 IIRC.
