Chequered Flag Services, January 2022

'When William Boddy, of Motor Sport magazine, reviewed the original book, his parting comment was that “this is a great contribution to serious motor-racing history”. This was indeed a labour of love by the original authors, which in my view has been made even better by the subsequent additions, and while a heavyweight item (both physically and metaphorically), deserves a place on the bookshelf of any serious follower of the sport.

“Mission accomplished”, indeed.'

'Vanwall - The Story of Britain's first Formula 1 World Champions" takes the reader into an exotic, different era of racing than driving on racetracks whose slopes were made of trees, with pilots at the steering wheel who looked like tightrope walkers operating without a safety net .

Vanwall is a Formula 1 story as it could no longer be written today; with deep insights from the authors without restrictions and without whitewashing. Every Grand Prix fan will enjoy it a lot.'

'Reviewing books from major publishers is something I’ve been doing for many years, and thoroughly enjoy, especially when on a depressingly wet Monday in early December the man from DHL delivers me a heavy package marked Porter Press International. I just know the sun is about to shine.

Aficionados will immediately recognise what must be regarded as the definitive history of Vanwall, written with passion by unrivalled experts Denis Jenkinson and Cyril Posthumous, with input from Doug Nye, because it was first published way back in 1975.

No matter. And make no mistake. This is a genuine masterpiece, given only the lightest of sympathetic make-overs. Images border on perfection. The only question that now remains: Does one keep it on the bookcase, or hang it on the wall?'
