And, while we are on the subject of South African motor racing books, is there any word of when the next volume of Sunset on Kyalami will be published?

As probably the original champion of this book's cause over here I am delighted at its success and I recommend it again, see previous relevant posts here. It is a wonderful collection of mainly colour shots of the sixties at Kyalami. I look forward to vol 2.
Regarding the Maggs book, I understand that it is Rand 250 and post etc to UK around £6.50

I sent e-mail to Ms. Vos two weeks ago inquiring about purchasing a copy of the Maggs book and have had no reply. Any ideas of how to get a copy? And, while we are on the subject of South African motor racing books, is there any word of when the next volume of Sunset on Kyalami will be published?



Hi Frank,
I'm astonished, as I have had immediately responses from Anne. Try again!!After 9 days I had my copy in Germany.
As for the Sunset-book part II: the author and publisher told me (sometimes last year) that in December 2009 the 2nd volume will be ready. Slightly optimistic??
Best regards Michael


Well, I e-mailed again and this time got a very fast response, so all is well!

Frank

Hi Frank--good news!!

As to the Sunset Volume II: I contacted the 'author'. He told me:'...X-mas 2010 or never!!! But the chances are good that we can see the Volume 2!!

Best regards Michael
BTW I saw on abebooks a rather 'shabby' Robert Young: the Springbok Grand Prix (sic). Is this book worth 60 gbp??
Does anyone have this book??

With all due respect to Robert (who posts here as ry6) I don't think it will tell you much more than "Sun on the Grid" by Ken Stewart and Norman Reich, which dates from about the same time and also covers the pre-War races and sports car racing.

Having said that, I was surprised to find that Chaters are now asking £65 for it - I paid about £35 on eBay about 3 years ago, actually from the publisher. There is a copy on ABE for £60 as I type this, but £70+ seems to be the going rate. First editions command silly money, but do have colour plates, which are monochrome in the 1998 reprint as the printing plates no longer existed.

Hi Vitesse--I'm a happy owner of 'Sun on the grid'. So I save my money on the Roberts book.
Thanks for the background information.

Lister-Jaguar book

First review is out from Nigel Thorley:

Paul Skilleter, acclaimed Jaguar historian and regular contributor to Jaguar Enthusiast is well known for his publishing skills and indeed, over recent years has produced some magnificent works about Norman Dewis and Ecurie Ecosse and now offers another major work on Lister-Jaguar.

This is no minor publication but a major work on this fascinating subject. In over 270 pages with no less than 700 illustrations, Paul has carefully researched the background and history of Brian Lister and his cars.

The Lister-Jaguar was Britain's most successful big-engined sports/racing car of the 1950s and the story of Brian and his cars evokes this wonderful period of racing history. As Brian is still alive, Paul has been able to take advantage of the memories, archives and stories from the great man himself.

The book covers everything an enthusiast needs to know on the subject. From the early days of Brian's road-going modified cars to the first true-Listers. There is a wealth of information and the period pictures tell their own incredible story of the man and the great cars. Lister-Jaguars, of course, feature strongly with some great anecdotes and many of the pictures have not been seen before.

There's a very interesting section entitled "Brian's Scrapbook" with great personal pictures, letters, etc. reproduced for the readers benefit to fill in gaps in the story. There's even a chapter devoted to the Lister Sunbeam-Tigers (did you know about those?) and the story is brought up to date with a chapter devoted to the later years of XJ-S models and, of course, the Lister-Storm.

This is no book for bedside reading as you just won't be able to put it down. I personally found it the most interesting of recent books on matters relating to Jaguars and well worth the price.

I've seen it, I can't tell if the photos are of real cars or of models, there's certainly a good deal of architectural elevation style pictures of battered Matchboxes on white backgrounds. Next to no text, so you have to guess a lot of the cars.

Yeah, it looks like a lot of 1/43 scale cars as photo subjects. I guess showing the images without the text makes it more of an art book than a car book. I'm interested in checking it out.

Lister-Jaguar Book

For those coming to Race Retro, the Lister-related celebrities that will be on Paul's stand (D60, Hall 2) will be, amongst others:

Brian Lister (Founder)
Dick Barton (Chief Race Mechanic)
Colin Crisp (Race Mechanic)
Ken Hazelwood (Race Mechanic)
Norman Dewis (who needs no introduction and will be 90 on August 3rd!)

All should be available for signatures for those that want them.

Some of the people mentioned here will only be there on the Friday for the book launch ceremony which will be at 11:30am -
everyone is invited. Those above should also be around on the Saturday.

Oakfleld's will provide the Storm for display, Knobbly and Costin Listers are being provided by Derek Hood of J D Classics and a
Lister-Bristol by Stephen Bond. John Coundley owned and raced six Lister-Jaguar's and will also be present along with John Pearson,
his mechanic. Our own Ted Walker who provided many of the archive photographs (Ferret Fotographics) used in the book should also
be present and has a company stand at the show.

I gather some of Urs Schmid's 'Jaguar XK120 - The Anatomy of a Cult Object Volume 1', in both German and English editions, will also be available on Paul's stand, the first time they've been on display and available in the UK I believe.

And artist Paul Dove will have a nice 1/4 scale model of Mike Hawthorn's Cooper-Bristol on display on his stand - built by his father
in around 400 hours of work. Also some new JMH paintings.

Friends:

I'm reliably told that David Bull Publishing plans to launch the companion photo volume to Michael Argetsingers's great biography Mark Donohue, Excellence At Speed, at Road America on the weekend of July 16-18th. If the quality of this new book even approaches that of MD, EAS, it should be sensational! For what it's worth (not much), I plan to be there with my pal Tom Warth in his Citroen 2CV.

Another terrific book that just landed here is Porsche 718 & 804 by Foedisch, Nesshover, Behrndt & Rossbach, the first dedicated history of a little-known era of Porsche racing, the 1.5-liter F2 and F1 cars, from 1957 through 1964. Because of the great contemporary black-and-white photographs, including fascinating workshop scenes, it gets my vote as the Porsche book of 2010. When it arrived, my next two hours were gladly spent enjoying it.

That is quite true, Frank. In fact that is one of the subjects of a separate thread here on TNF that Brian Brown has been maintaining with daily postings for the past few months. Mark Donohue Celebration at Road America.

There should be quite a turnout of TNF types that weekend. Paul Powell is organizing the event, Brian Brown, Paul Medici, Jerry Entin, and myself will all be there.

Matt:

You can practically bet on it. There was a publisher's edition of Michael's first Donohue book, so it's dead certain. I'm looking forward to being at the Road America event in July (look for me with Tom Warth in his 2CV). This book should equal or perhaps exceed the "text" version and will undoubtedly be an excellent companion.

David Bull usually air-ships books in for their intro then has surface-shipped books for sale later on the web site, etc. whenever they arrive.

Frank, you are right. Michael confirms that there will be a publisher's edition, although in what form is undetermined. Right now Michael and David Bull Publishing are rushing to wrap up the book itself. Thoughts about a publisher's edition are on the back burner for the moment, but Michael says that it is a good bet to say that there will be one although the specifics are undetermined.

Note that there is also a "Publisher's Edition" available with signatures of Alma Hill, Dan Gurney, Jim Hall, Mario Andretti, John Lamm and Chuck Queener.

Edition of 300 copies.

Just ordered mine as I'm fairly certain it'll sell out at least as quickly as the "Donohue Technical Excellence" limited edition did. :up:

Thanks. I just ordered mine. I didn't even realize this book was in the works. Maybe it'll keep me occupied until DCN's Phil Hill book comes out!

Does anyone know where there might be a copy of this book available? I've tried all the usual and/or obvious sources and have come up empty.

250 GTO 45TH ANNIVERSARY

published by Fink Presse (France, I believe) in cooperation with Ferrari Club of France, author unknown.

I believe it was published fairly recently in a limited edition of less than 2,000.

Many thanks.

Jack.
