Description du produit

Revue de presse

"What's unusual is the structure - concise two-page summaries of each few years, with highlights, events and trends, plus generous picture sections with explanatory captions. It works brilliantly... This is a very personal work, frank and straightforward, and unexpectedly engaging." --Motor Sport

"What a life and what a marvellous book to celebrate Surtees' 80th birthday. It's built around archive photos of his incredibly successful years racing bikes and then cars, becoming the only man to win world championships on two and four wheels. For all that, the commentary is modest. No need to brag when your record can speak for itself, and when these photos do such a good job." --Ride

"A beautifully illustrated 300-page tome that tells the full story as it happened. Surtees is a hero among heroes and richly deserves every plaudit." --Steve Cropley, Autocar

Présentation de l'éditeur

This long-awaited book is a photographic memoir by the only man to have won World Championships on motorcycles and in cars. Winner of the inaugural ROYAL AUTOMOBILE CLUB MOTORING BOOK OF THE YEAR. Containing nearly 300 photographs from Surtees' own collection as well as from the world's finest motorsport picture libraries, this major book presents a complete visual record of Surtees' life accompanied by fascinating commentary written in collaboration with co-author Mike Nicks. Chapters of particular interest are those covering Surtees's formative years and the extraordinary 1960 season in which he raced both motorcycles and cars, winning two World Championships on MV Agusta bikes as well as taking second place for Lotus in the British GP, which was only his second Formula 1 race. Royalties from sales of the book will go to the Henry Surtees Foundation, which was set up to honour the memory of John's son Henry, who was killed in a freak accident at Brands Hatch in 2009. - The early years (up to 1952): a childhood around motorcycle racing, apprenticeship with Vincent, then racing a Vincent Grey Flash.- Getting established (1953a 55): Moving on to ride mainly Manx Nortons, he did 86 races in one year, and in 1955 achieved his first grand prix win, in the 250cc Ulster GP on an NSU.- The glory years (1956a 60): dominating top-level motorcycle racing for five years with Italian team MV Agusta, taking seven World Championship titles on 500cc and 350cc bikes.- The remarkable year of bikes and cars (1960): overlapping his last year of motorcycle racing with 17 car races, including four F1 World Championship events.- Ferrari driver (1963a 66): established in cars, he joined Ferrari, winning his first race a the Sebring 12 Hours for sports cars a and the following year becoming F1 World Champion.- Can-Am champion (1966): after recovery from a huge crash in a Lola T70 sports car and acrimonious departure from Ferrari, he bounced back in North America to win the spectacular Can-Am series.- Turning Japanese (1967a 68): Honda invited Surtees to develop and drive its F1 cars for two years, with victory in the Italian GP at Monza the highlight.- Becoming a constructor (1969a 78): going into single-seater racing, including F1, with Team Surtees and cars of his own manufacture; Mike Hailwood won the European F2 Championship in 1972.- The latter years (1978 onwards): fully active on the historic scene as a restorer and driver of motorcycles and cars, then nurturing son Henry's career until the tragic accident."
