By Doug Nye

This book offers an exclusive look at one of the world’s greatest collections of competition cars. During the late 1960s, the success achieved by the Gulf-JW Automotive team fired the imagination of a young German enthusiast by the name of Roald Goethe and created a lasting impression.

Decades later, and with the help of Adrian Hamilton, Goethe set about fulfilling a childhood dream. His mission was to create a collection of racers that had been backed by one of the most famous names in motorsport sponsorship – Gulf Oils. From sports-racers and single-seaters to 21st century GT contenders, the result is an unrivalled and truly evocative set of more than 30 cars – all of which are included in this exciting new title.

  • Every car in the collection, from Mirage M1 to Aston Martin GTE, covered in depth by one of the world’s leading motorsport historians.
  • The full history of iconic models such as the Ford GT40, Porsche 917 and McLaren M23 – plus lesser-known curiosities such as the Mirage M5 Formula Ford car.
  • Quotes from the drivers, engineers and team managers who were involved with each car.
  • This is by no means a static collection – the book also includes the story of how the cars are looked after and campaigned in the world’s best historic motorsport events.
  • Full specifications and period race history for every car included in the extensive appendices.
  • More than 300 photographs, including a specially commissioned photoshoot of each car and superb archive images.
  • Limited edition of 900 copies.

Specifications: 240 mm x 300 mm (landscape), 304 pages

ROFGO Collection

The book arrived on time and safely packaged. Doug Nye has written a most readable book covering each of the cars in the current collection, including comments of some of those directly involved. The quality of the printing and photographs is excellent. I was the Gulf Racing Lubricants and Fuels Engineer for Europe from March 1971-December 1975 and reported to John Horsman at JW Automotive Engineering and Gulf Research Racing Ltd. Thus, I was in attendance at all the Gulf-Porsche 917 and Gulf Mirage races during those years, also a few McLaren F1 races - great memories!
