In the winner’s enclosure
Ford GT40 – the autobiography of 1075 by Ray Hutton. This sumptuous book tells the story of one of the world’s most important racing cars. Always raced in Gulf’s iconic blue-and- orange colours, this Ford GT40 won the Le Mans 24 Hours not just once but twice, in 1968 and 1969, and the second victory came after the closest fight ever seen at the finish of this great endurance race. One of the most fascinating of motorsport books, the car’s entire competition life is covered in fascinating detail, together with biographies of its drivers and insights into John Wyer’s crack team that ran it, all supported by a fine collection of period photographs.
Austin Healey - the story of DD 300 by Simon Ham. This book is the first in our new 'Porter Profiles' series.
Ford GT40 Mark II - The remarkable history of 1016 by Mark Cole. This book tells the story of Ford GT40 Mark II, chassis no. P/1016, one of the trio of cars that crossed the finishing line together at Le Mans in 1966 to score Ford’s first victory in the 24 Hour race. The book covers the car’s development, its technical details and specification, the role of the Holman & Moody engineering team and biographies of its drivers.
