by Nick Dimbleby

The slipcase of the Collector’s Edition features debossed tyre tracks matching the original Camel Trophy marketing material and is signed by author Nick Dimbleby and Camel Trophy winners Bob Ives and Joe Ives.

Camel Trophy charts the twenty-one-year history of an event that gained legendary status due to the extraordinary challenge posed to competitors and their vehicles. On most of these adventures, held from 1980 to 2000, teams drove specially prepared Land Rovers to the limit and beyond in locations as varied as Borneo, Mongolia, Papua New Guinea and Tanzania. As an official photographer on the last four events, author Nick Dimbleby combines his first-hand account with experiences shared by competitors, contemporary reports and extensive new interviews of key players, to tell a gripping tale of adventure, adversity, technological change and logistical challenge. Beautifully illustrated, its 930 images showcase the iconic photography as well as unofficial behind-the-scenes snap shots, this extensively researched publication can legitimately claim to be the definitive history of the Camel Trophy.

  • The only complete guide to every Camel Trophy, fully illustrated with unique and evocative imagery from official photographers, as well as behind-the-scenes material from staff members.
  • Painstakingly researched, with all key players interviewed.
  • Remarkable stories that chart Camel Trophy’s progress from small, German-market promotional event to multi-million dollar international competition.
  • Chapters on selections, infrastructure and pre-scouts, provide a fascinating insight into how the Camel Trophy events were put together.
  • A complete guide to the vehicles used on the event, including technical specifications and insights into the design and build of the Land Rovers, Ford-engined Jeeps and RIBs (Rigid Inflatable Boats) used.
