Dear all,

 

I'm selling on ebay four books that might be of interest:

First is Vol. III of Greg Fielden's Forty Years of Stock Car Racing (Big Bucks and Boycotts, 1965-1971), Autographed by the author and in very good shape. The hefty price+postage is explained by the book's heavy weight (1.4kg) and the choice of registered postage. I can send via much cheaper, normal post too, PM me for more details. The book did not cost me much, and I'm willing to let it go for a fair price.

The second tome is a modern classic of French motorsports literature, Renaud de Laborderie's account of Prost Grand Prix's history. It's in a generally good state - no damage done to the pages, but because it's a paperback the cover's edges are a bit bumped.

This is a very good read, which seeks to describe the backstage fights and deals that Prost waged with French politicians, Peugeot and Renault, his drivers (Panis and Alesi do not come very well out of the picture), and many other well known names of the pitlane. Suffice it to say, this is far from being the typical "and then they went to Monza" kind of book.

Finally, I'm also selling two vols. of Motocourse: 1989 and 1992. The text and pictures are immaculate, but neither volume has its dust-jacket and the spines show signs of use (particularly the 89's which albeit functional is slightly damaged, see pics).
