Graham Hill Scrapbook 1929-1966
Graham Hill (1929 -1975) is the only driver to have won motor racing’s triple crown: the World Championship, the Indianapolis 500 and the Le Mans 24-Hour race.
The Graham Hill Scrapbook 1929 – 66 charts the rise of a motor racing legend. It follows Hill from his childhood, through his humble beginnings as an apprentice and unpaid mechanic, to the heights of World Championship fame. This book concludes in 1966 with Hill’s superb Indianapolis win.
More than a biography, the Graham Hill Scrapbook is a highly personal account of the courage and single-minded determination required to build a career in motor racing. It is made all the more enjoyable by being permeated with Hill’s great personal charm and beguiling sense of fun.
This beautifully-designed, and well-presented, large format work is entirely based upon Hill’s personal scrapbooks, keep-sakes, press-cuttings and recorded views of his life in racing. It is enriched throughout by Hill’s own reminiscences, plus those of his family, colleagues and friends.
The work is written by Philip Porter, the Montagu Trophy-winning author of over 30 books including the Stirling Moss Scrapbook 1955 and Jaguar Scrapbook. Foreword by Damon Hill.
