Books - Amedee Gordini, A True Racing Legend (Author: Smith)
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Amedee Gordini, A True Racing Legend Weight 1.7kg by Roy Smith Surprisingly few books have been written about the cars of Amedee Gordini and this is the first time that there has been a complete title in English and believed to be the first book covering the great engineer’s life. Born in Italy as Amedeo Gordini, he changed his name when he became a French citizen, a few months short of his thirtieth birthday. Around this time he also became an agent for FIAT cars and over the next decade things really took off. War interrupted of course and so in the mid-1940s Gordini was back to building up a new business and starting all over again. It was the late 1940s and into the early 50s that Gordini race cars became well known with plenty of successes and Gordini then went on to work with Renault on engine projects before being bought out by the giant manufacturer. The story is well written and a great deal of time has clearly gone into the photo research to provide a fantastic selection of images. The key 1950s racing history is the largest section of the book and this includes race reports and a huge results section charting all manner of events.
