Description

The remarkable story of everything Sydney Herbert Allard achieved in motor sport and motor car manufacture is framed in an up-to-date commentary co-authored by his own son. This is a tribute unswayed by legend, but based on the facts and achievements of his eponymous company. With contributions from the Allard Owners' Club and Allard Register, this book contains painstaking research of Allard history from 1929 to present day.

The author

Alan Allard is the son of the marque's founder, Sydney Allard, and is also a significant motorsport and engineering figure in his own right - a pioneering, record-holding British dragster driver, national class rally driver, and the man behind the further development of supercharging. Today Alan leads the Allard Motor Company as it launches its new 'continuation' chassis built by Alan and his son, Lloyd. Younger son Gavin curates the Allard archives. Alan and his family are key supporters of the Allard Owners Club.
