We don’t normally sell books, but once in awhile a book so important to road racing fans arrives, we simply can’t ignore it. That is the case with the new book from David Bull Publishing entitled Ferrari Prototype Era, 1962-1973 in photographs. During those years Scuderia Ferrari won seven major championships and developed supremely powerful and agile prototype sports cars, which often benefited from the team’s Formula 1 experience. This book is big and heavy (11¼” × 11¼” and 172 pages, about 3½ pounds) with a great many photograhps, each with informative captions (including each car’s chassis number).
We are selling Alex Gabbard’s book “Indy’s Wildest Decade Innovation and Revolution at the Brickyard”. In this book, Alex Gabbard covers the history of innovation and racing experimentation at the Indy 500, from the Miller era through the Junk Formula and the Roadster era, then gives you a year-by-year account of Indy’s wildest decade ever, the 1960s. The transition to rear-engine cars, followed by Ford’s stock-block V-8 challengers, turbo versions of both Fords and Offys, STP’s turbine cars, DOHC Fords, wider tires, engineers, aerodynamics — all combined to produce some incredible racing that changed the face of Indy forever. Profusely illustrated with more than 300 photos (nearly half of them in color), this book is sure to become a classic among Indy racing fans.
We don’t normally sell books, but once in awhile a book so important to road racing fans arrives, we simply can’t ignore it. That is the case with the new book from David Bull Publishing entitled Daytona 24 Hours, the Definitive History of America’s Great Endurance Race. To our knowledge there has never been a book covering this great race to any extent at all. This book is big and heavy (about 5 pounds), 400 high quality pages, 328 color pictures and 94 black and white pictures. The book covers the period 1962 (Daytona Continental) through 2002. The author, J. J. O’Malley, is senior editor for International Speedway Corporation Publications. The forward is written by Hurley Haywood, photos selected by Buz McKim, the book also features a complete driver’s index and year by year race results. We call it unbelievable. Many rarely seen photos included and the book chapters are arranged logically by the annual race so you can go directly to the 1970 chapter to see and read about the great Porsche 917 vs. Ferrari 512S battle.
