Books - Alan Mann, A Life of Chance (Author: Mann, Dron)

Alan Mann, A Life of Chance     (Author: Mann, Dron)  by Books

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
Alan Mann, A Life of Chance
Alan Mann was just twenty seven years old when he launched Alan Mann Racing in 1964, but he already had plenty of experience as a driver, mechanic and team manager by that stage. Here he tells his own story from a reasonably comfortable childhood in the south of England during the war, through a character building time at an English public school and into the motor trade at the age of seventeen. Bitten by the motorsport bug early into his working life, Mann was soon preparing and racing his own cars and within a few years running cars for other people. With his own company he quickly became synonymous with Ford products and for a few years was a major entrant on the international and national racing scene. The story in engagingly written in the first person and Tony Dron has been on hand to tidy up a few loose ends and add research where the usually excellent recollections got a little hazy. The story is lavishly illustrated with photos from Alan Mannís own archives and those of Ford, the majority of the former being previously unpublished. I lost an hour as soon as I opened this, which is always a good sign with a new book!
