Classic Racers: New Zealand's Grand Prix Greats by Eoin Young

N/A

The 1950s and '60s were glamorous years for New Zealand motor sport.

Stirling Moss, Jack Brabham, Graham Hill and other greats visited regularly to compete in the New Zealand Grand Prix, and our own drivers were making it big on the world stage - Bruce McLaren, Denny Hulme, Chris Amon and Howden Ganley all competed in Formula One.

In New Zealand, ex-Formula One cars were being driven by locals : Tazio Nuvolari's P3 Alfa Romeo and Ferrari's 4.5 litre debur Grand-Prix winner were raced by Ron Roycroft : Stirling Moss's Maserati 250F by Ross Jensen.

In ' Classic Racers, ' Eoin Young brings this bygone era to life with profiles of eleven top Kiwi drivers, not only McLaren and his colleagues, but also Roycroft, Jensen and Tom Clark ; the innovative Bill Hamilton ; home-town hero Ernie Sprague and ill-fated Johnny Mansel.

Eoin describes being a passenger for five hair-raising laps aroung Goodwood with Bruce McLaren, and back home - and in control - tries out Nuvolari's P3. a Mille Miglia Ferrari and a Le Mans C-Type Jaguar.

Other cars featured include the Lycoming Special, Indy Stutz and Stanton Crop-duster, enduring vehicles from this era of elegance and power.

15 x 23 cms approx; illustrations ; 2003, 248pages, very good condition
