"A great book of NZ racing icons"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

An awesome book with great pictorial shots of NZ's best racing icons. A great insight into the drivers and their cars and the tracks they competed on.


McLaren, Hulme and Amon have risen above the radar in New Zealand with colourful tales of skill, success, daring and disaster. To have merely competed overseas, let alone excelled at any level in motor sport, is to have achieved something beyond our local comprehension. In New Zealand, motor racing is fun, and expensive. Overseas, it is deadly serious, expensive beyond our grasp and hugely competitive. Greg Murphy, the best known driver in New Zealand today, is one of many Kiwis whose name has been on the lips of millions outside Australasia, in America and Europe. We track the careers of the extraordinary individuals who cut their teeth in New Zealand, then went the thousands of extra miles to put our flag on top in world motorsport. These include: Chris Amon, Craig Baird, Scott Dixon, Denny Hulme, Bruce McLaren, David Oxton, Aaron Slight, Paul Radisich, Greg Murphy, Mike Thackwell, etc, etc.
