Apologies for the rather shameless promotion, but this has been a long time coming.

 

I am delighted to confirm that JACKY ICKX: HIS AUTHORISED COMPETITION HISTORY will be published by Evro Publishing on October 27th. Running to 592 pages it’s been written with Jacky’s full co-operation and details every one of the 565 races that he contested in cars and on motorcycles. The narrative is supported by over 850 photographs, many of which have never been published previously.

 

Jacky himself provides the Preface and Derek Bell has written the Foreword. I have to say I am rather excited about it!

 

You can read more at https://www.evropubl...etition-history if interested. Thanks for indulging me!

Congrats indeed, and thanks for keeping us updated.
Maybe it’s just me, but it seems like you just started on that book!

Being locked down by the pandemic gave me a lot of evenings for research, Dave!

It would be interesting a version for tablets, an e-book.I no longer have space in my house , the shelves are overflowing with books and magazines. It's been several years since I got used to reading on my iPad, ideal for travel and vacations.

Well done Jon, he is my favourite driver. If the book is up to your 'Niki' standard it will be another gem :clap: :clap:

Thanks Rob. You're very kind. I am confident you will enjoy this one!

 

The other day, I chanced upon an old archive TNF thread from 2000 where you were enquiring if there were any biographies about Jacky. Well, just 22 years later, hopefully this will do the job for you :)

Well done Jon. I'm sure it will be a big seller. One of my favourites - they showed a film of the 1967 German GP at the Hobart Sporting Car Club film night, must have been 1969 from memory. His drive in the F2 Matra was just incredible. I followed his career from that point onwards.
