Description

From the sleek futuristic McLaren M8A to the missile-shaped RA Vanguard, these are New Zealand's Historic Racing Cars in all their full-colour, tire-burning glory! Historic New Zealand Racing Cars reveals the fascinating histories of eighteen cars whose stories are intertwined with our motoring history.

Author Steve Holmes delves into the origins of each vehicle – from design, to racing achievements, and their fate thereafter. Each car is highlighted with a wealth of eye-catching photography. Featuring such racing greats as the mighty 1968 McLaren M8A Can-Am, through to the grass-roots domestic Specials. Single seaters, sports cars, and saloons are all profiled, with cars from the 1940s to the 1980s. Cars that were designed and built locally, to others of international origin, combined they represent a golden era of New Zealand motor racing history.
