Books - 25 Years Of GT Racing (Authors: Cotton)

25 Years Of GT Racing        (Authors: Cotton)  by Books

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
25 Years Of GT Racing
Weight 3.7kg by Andrew Cotton
Many forms of motorsport have gone through peaks and troughs in interest and in the early 1990s, sportscar racing was at a low, Le Mans seeing its lowest entry in 1992 since the depression hit early 1930s. Stephane Ratel was a young entrepreneur who had already made a fortune, and plenty of contacts, dealing in high end road cars and in his position as marketing manager at Venturi, helped save the company by creating a one-make series for their products and selling 70 cars to wealthy clients as a result. These gentlemen drivers were bitten by the racing bug and Ratelís organisation, SRO, moved on to more one make racing with Lamborghini and then to the BPR series, FIA GT Championship and today is heavily involved in the Blancpain Series amongst many others. Ratel has been a pivotal figure in the now huge sports-racing scene globally and here in this huge volume we follow how the sport has evolved over the past 25 years. This isnít about statistics and results, but as with all great coffee table books it is about the photographs, over 550 of them! The images selected are excellent and show us not just the different machines and the circuits that they have raced upon, but also many of the people who have been responsible for driving or preparing them, with plenty of them also adding their opinions and insights.
