Description

This is the story of a man, a team, and their life and times, as well as a complete record of all their achievements and failures. It logs the financial and personal cost of racing in the prewar and postwar periods. It tells of how the mighty car company Renault became involved with them in the late 1950s, and how Amedee Gordini became known throughout the world as one of the greatest engine tuners of his time.

The author

Roy Smith's keen eye for detail was developed during a 40-year career in sales and marketing. Having written for club magazines during the 1960s, interviewing notables of the time, when Roy retired from business in 2003, he decided to turn his attention to writing about motor sport, and now has six previous works to his name, as well as continuing to contribute specialist articles for websites and magazines worldwide. As with Roy's previous titles, his aim with this book is to provide a good read to newcomers and hardened enthusiasts alike.

Previous titles by Roy Smith include: Alpine & Renault - the sports prototypes (two volumes), Alpine & Renault- the development of the first Turbo Formula 1 cars, and Amedee Gordini - a true racing legend.
