Overview:Jim Clark To Jackie Stewart: Motor Racing in the 1960's - It has been said that if you can remember anything about the sixties you weren’t really there, but this entertaining book challenges that assertion on behalf of all those whose ‘highs’ came through motor racing. It is also said that a single picture is worth a thousand words and the author’s superb illustrations and memories of motor races in the 1960s, bring that era vividly back to life. Every Formula 1 World Championship event is included and, for good measure, the Monte Carlo Rally, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and the Targa Florio, raced over the mountainous Sicilian roads. In addition to Jim Clark and Jackie Stewart, the book also features the achievements of Stirling Moss, Jack Brabham, Graham Hill, John Surtees and all the other famous drivers of the period. The cars of the 60s are given due prominence but it is always remembered that it was the drivers, with their incredible skill, courage and competitive spirit, who were the real heroes of the age. A total of seven drivers won Formula l World Championships in the 1960s. Motorcycle Racing World Champion John Surtees gained his in a Ferrari in 1964, after exchanging two wheels for four; Graham Hill won his driving a B.R.M. in 1962 and a Lotus-Ford in 1968; Jack Brabham won his in a Cooper-Climax in 1960 and in a Brabham-Repco in 1966; the American Phil Hill won his with a Ferrari in 1961, and Denny Hulme gained his World Championship title with another Brabham-Repco in 1967. The achievements of all these drivers and their cars, along with many others, are recorded in this book, each expertly depicted through the author’s inimitable illustrations. Bryan Apps, an Oxford graduate, has been an Anglican priest in the Diocese of Winchester for 50 years. When he was a young curate in Andover his 97hp Mobile Church attracted the interest of the international Press. His passion for motor racing was ignited at the age of twelve by a visit to Goodwood in 1949, and he corresponded with Raymond Mays, who was both the originator of the E.R.A., and the instigator of the B.R.M. Bryan’s paintings of racing cars and drivers from the earliest days of the sport are wonderful evocations of their period and they led to lasting friendships with Manfred von Brauchitsch, Ken Tyrrell, and many of the most famous racing drivers from before and after the Second World War.
