The Bahamas Speed Weeks • Racing Book • #BK143192 The Bahamas Speed Weeks

The vision of one man, Captain Sherman "Red" Crise formed the basis for what was to become the Bahamas Speed Weeks, a series of motor races held on the island of New Providence in the Bahamas. They started in the mid 1950s and continued for 13 years, before ending due to a mix of political decisions, ill fortune and a shift in the direction motor racing had taken over that period of time. These years were described by many commentators as the golden age of motor racing, where internationally acclaimed drivers attended the Speed Weeks to mix with the many amateur racers from America who came to enjoy the scenario of sun, parties and racing. For many drivers the social scene was as important as the racing, and in latter years prize money was an extra incentive to turn up. This well researched account tracks the history of the Speed Weeks with its roller-coaster ride throughout its 13 years existence, and includes stunning photos, complete statistics, and more. With a foreword by Denise McCluggage

CAN-AM CARS IN DETAIL • Machines And Minds Racing Unrestrained • #BK117111 CAN-AM CARS IN DETAIL
Machines And Minds Racing Unrestrained

Giant engines. Revolutionary aeroforms. Thunderous power, lap speeds faster than those of Formula One cars, and a freedom from regulation that today’s racers may not even be able to dream of. That was the Can-Am.

The original Canadian-American Challenge Cup series only lasted from 1966 to 1974, but what ground-shaking, carshaping years those were. With minimal rules and lavish prize money, the Can-Am attracted top-flight teams and superstar drivers from sports cars, F1, and Indy car racing. It also encouraged innovation, and for almost every round, racing’s most inventive minds brought out novel and astounding ideas.

Can-Am Cars in Detail revisits 22 of these epic machines through stunning studio photography by Peter Haroldt and vivid descriptions by Pete Lyons, long considered the dean of Can-Am journalists. Can-Am cars are beautiful blends of art and action, pinnacles of engineering and craftsmanship that express the heights of human imagination and ambition and achievement. Seen in the chronological order that they appeared at Bridgehampton, Mosport, Laguna Seca and other classic road courses, these machines invite us to join them on a journey.

CORVETTE THUNDER
50 Years Of Corvette Racing 1953 - 2003

On June 30, 1953, the first Corvette rolled off the assembly line in Flint, Michigan. It was not long afterward that the first Corvette rolled onto a racetrack starting grid. In the intervening 50 years something truly astounding took place: the Corvette, America's sports car, became a dominating force in racing around the world. It is a fascinating story with as many twists and turns as the racetracks the Corvette has won on. It is also a story that has yet to be told the way it should be. Until now.

Corvette Racing Legends • The Story of the L-88 Option Package • #BK300003 Corvette Racing Legends
The Story of the L-88 Option Package

Corvette Racing Legends gives you the story of how the Corvette began its humble racing career with a small block Chevrolet engine back in 1956, and how it progressed through the Corvette SS, Sting Ray racer, the Z06 Sting Ray and the Grand Sport prototypes. These Corvettes would eventually lead to the release of the L-88 competition engine option and its required option package, which would power the Corvette to many International victories. These wins came as quickly as the L-88 was introduced and they continued for over 12 years of racing!

The Legend Comes to Life

One of the most exciting new cars of 2004 is profiled in this beautiful book. The Ford GT is the modern version of the incredible GT40, a car created by Ford in the 1960s to beat the Ferraris at Le Mans-which they did! The success of the original GT40, coupled with its great looks, made it one of the most popular cars in automotive racing history. Ford has revived the spirit of the original race car with perhaps its most exciting new car in 30 years-the Ford GT. The new car has lines taken straight off the original GT40 and power supplied by a 500-hp V-8. Three Ford GTs will be built in 2003 to commemorate the 1-2-3 victory at Le Mans in 1966, and the car will see limited regular production beginning in June 2004.
This book includes an in-depth analysis of how the car came to be, complete with original interviews with Ford executives and engineers as well as drawings of concept cars. Also included is a short chapter summing up the origins and race history of the GT40. Also a section discussing the concepts for GT40 revivals. Many of these cars have not been revealed in publications previously.

The History of Gulf in Motorsports

BLUE & ORANGE focuses on the drivers, the cars and the races associated with the Pittsburgh company and their famous logo through the best part of 70 years.  The lavishly illustrated hard-back publication starts with Harry Miller's Indy 500 challenger which, in 1937, was a hugely innovative mid-engined single-seater that boasted nothing less than 4-wheel drive and disc brakes! In 1966 Gulf Oil vice-president Grady Davis bought a Ford GT40 and formed a lasting friendship with John Wyer. Their mutual interest would turn into a full-scale racing partnership lasting nine eventful years, perhaps endurance racing’s most successful commercial partnership of all time. With Ford GT40s, Porsche 917s, three world championships, three outright victories at Le Mans and an association with some of the world’s greatest drivers, this was truly the golden era of sports car racing. Pedro Rodriguez and Jo Siffert established new speed records everywhere they raced in Gulf Porsche 917s, and their exploits are now legendary. Steve McQueen's film 'Le Mans' gave the Gulf Porsche 917 an iconic status, and a chapter in BLUE & ORANGE features stories and photographs of Steve McQueen some of these are being published for the very first time.

In 1966 Gulf Oil vice-president Grady Davis bought a Ford GT40 and formed a lasting friendship with John Wyer. Their mutual interest would turn into a full-scale racing partnership lasting nine eventful years, perhaps endurance racing’s most successful commercial partnership of all time. With Ford GT40s, Porsche 917s, three world championships, three outright victories at Le Mans and an association with some of the world’s greatest drivers, this was truly the golden era of sports car racing. Pedro Rodriguez and Jo Siffert established new speed records everywhere they raced in Gulf Porsche 917s, and their exploits are now legendary. Steve McQueen's film 'Le Mans' gave the Gulf Porsche 917 an iconic status, and a chapter in BLUE & ORANGE features stories and photographs of Steve McQueen some of these are being published for the very first time.

BK146627 Denny Hulme • Biography • #BK146627 Memories of The Bear
A Biography of Denny Hulme

When Denny Hulme won the 1967 Formula 1 World Championship, he jokingly asked Jim Clark to do the fame bit for him as he so disliked being in the spotlight. Behind the wheel of a racing car, however, the self-effacing New Zealander, known affectionately as "The Bear", showed ferocious determination. Racing was a passion. This book charts his illustrious career, which included eight Grand Prix victories and two Can-Am sports car titles.

McLaren - The Drivers • #BK149070
McLAREN
The Drivers 1964 - 2012

With a range of highly competitive cars run across a broad spectrum of motorsports categories since 1964, McLaren has attracted many of the world's greatest racing drivers. These are the stories of the most significant of them, from the heroism of Hulme and Dan Gurney in holding the shattered team together in the aftermath of Bruce McLaren's death on 2 June 1970, to the understated assurance of Mika Hakkinen and the brilliance of Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button; from the unique victories by Mike Walker in the Formula 3 M4A in 1968 to Neil Allen's Tasman successes, Scooter Patrick's Can-Am swan song, and Mark Donohue's stellar triumphs in North America. Today McLaren is rightly regarded as one of the greatest racing teams in history, these are the stories of the men who helped to forge that reputation in the crucible of automotive competition.

BK146777 To Finish First • Cooper Brabham McLaren • #BK146777 To Finish First
My Years Inside Formula 1, Can-Am & Indy 500
This lavishly produced book fills an important gap in the history of top-level motor racng during a historic era. The author was at the center of it all, first as Sir Jack Brabham's right-hand man during his leadership of the Cooper team, and later when he formed his own Brabham Racing Organization. Subsequently, when Phil Kerr joined his great friend Bruce McLaren, to become joint managing director of an ever expanding company, which was to achieve unrivalled success in Can-Am racing as well as being at the forefront of Formula One, he and his colleagues had to cope with the tragedy of the founders untimely death while testing a Can-Am car at Goodwood. The authors description of how the shattered team was saved and ultimately restored by the bravery of Bruce's co-driver Denny Hulme, already sidelined by agonizing burns to his hands, is a poignant highlight of his elegantly written manuscript of more than 120,000 words. Printed on high-quality art paper and beautifully illustrated, with a balanced mix of racing and off-duty pictures, many being seen for the first time, in addition to 15 reproductions of the paintings by the renowned artist Michael Turner, this is a handsome book indeed.
