'Author Cole is very well placed to guide the reader - this is a man who has been there, done that and got a wardrobe full of Le Mans T-shirts.'
Auto Tradition, 2020 Finale
'Twenty five year's on from its famous debut victory in the 1995 Le Mans 24 Hours, the wonderful McLaren F1 GTR is the subject of this major two-volume history. Derived from the BMW V12-powered three-seat McLaren F1 road car, the F1 GTR only came into existence because of the customer pressure on designer Gordan Murray to produce a racing version. With 28 examples built over three seasons, the F1 GTR was fabulously successful, winning 41 of its 131 races and taking two international championship titles. This sumptuous book outlines the life of the McLaren F1 GTR in exhaustive depth, with Volume 1 devoted to race-by-race narrative and Volume 2 to individual car histories and the stories of the people who raced them, all supported by over 775 colour photographs.'
'Every so often a title comes onto the market that stands head and shoulders above all others. With content, presentation, and production exemplary, it makes it a tome you just have to have. Well, this new book, by legendary Le Mans commentator and sportscar enthusiast, Mark Cole, published by Porter Press International, ticks all the above boxes and many more.'
'The book is beautifully illustrated with spectacular photography - simply a must for any serious aficionado's library.'
