To mark the 60th birthday of F1 stock car racing in the UK, I have written a book entitled, 'Celebrating F1 Stock Car Racing's Diamond Jubilee 1954-2014'.
As a spectator and avid fan since the late 1960s, I wanted to record in some way the longevity of this remarkably addictive sport and attempt to trace its progress from the stripped down road cars of the 1950s to the thoroughbred racing machines of the present day, and the result was this book.
There are facts, legends, stars and personalities of stock car racing and a miscellany of nostalgia together with a glimpse into the future. It is Standard Portrait size (20x25cms) and runs to 124 pages with over 250 pictures - all in full colour.
Below are pictures of the front and rear cover and also the contents page:
The book is available to purchase online at www.blurb.co.uk where the first 15 pages can be viewed. A link is provided at the foot of this page. It comes in one of three formats: soft-cover, hardcover with a dust jacket or hardcover with image wrap and prices are shown on the website. The book is printed to order and sent direct to the purchaser by post (usually by courier service).
There is also an eBook version for viewing on Apple iPads and iPods using the free iBook app but it is not available, at this time, for the Kindle.
