Books - Tony Southgate, From the Drawing Board to Chequered Flag (Author: Southgate)

Tony Southgate, From the Drawing Board to Chequered Flag    (Author: Southgate)  by Books

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
weight 1.4kg by Tony Southgate Tony Southgate has been one of the most versatile and successful designers of racing cars of his generation and here, in his own words he tells of his life in motorsport. Like so many young engineers and racers in post-war Britain he started off in the 750 Motor Club with a self built car and soon moved on to work alongside Eric Broadley at Lola, another 750MC graduate. Here he was involved in drawing and assembling the Mk6 GT racer but left for Brabham when Ford took over the project, only to return a few years later with designs that included the 1966 Indy 500 winner. This then took Southgate to America to work for Dan Gurney's Eagle team and more Indy success before returning to the UK and joining BRM. Over the following decades we then see Southgate move to Arrows, Lotus, Shadow, Chevron and Theodore in Formula 1. The early 1980s saw a move to Ford and work on the Group C C100, then a diversion to design the RS200 rally car and after that, a return to sportscars with Jaguar and eventual multiple Le Mans successes. The remainder of Southgate's working career was in sportscars, with IMSA machines for Nissan, the very different culture at Toyota, working with Dallara on the Ferrari 333SP, back to TWR and ultimately developing Audi's all conquering R8. This all brings us to 2000, retirement and a return to where it all began forty years before, amateur racing with the 750MC. It's all written with great candour and humour and throughout we are treated to excellent photos. A great read.
