Format: Hardcover
It was the birth of a new Grand Prix car, the March 701, to be driven by defending World Champ Jackie Stewart and arch rival, former Ferrari driver, Chris Amon. This is just a small flavor for what was a watershed book for the "tell all" tomes to come. Ted Simon spent an entire year with the Grand Prix circus and the result is a book which has yet to be equaled today. If your interest lies in the older days of Grand Prix racing, this book is for you. At times, it almost reads like a work of fiction. Then again, the characters of the early seventies racing are no longer seen in our super sanitized 90's. You will read this over and over again.
