Synopsis

Today, one cannot escape the fact that the words 'Porsche' and 'racing' go hand in hand. This book follows Porsche's year-by-year progress in top flight racing, and looks in detail at the pure competition cars that brought the German marque such immense success on the tracks and worldwide acclaim. This particular volume starts with story of the giant killing 550 Spyders of 1953 vintage, and takes the reader through a series of racing models, including the glorious 917, up to 1975 via contemporary photography and words from an acknowledged Porsche authority. A second volume covers the years 1976 onwards. The book includes detailed year by year coverage of Porsche's top class racing exploits in words and 300 excellent photos.

Independent Reviews

"... best of all for me were the photographs, a remarkably comprehensive selection covering everything from 356 to 917." - Classic & Sports Car
-

"... somehow this trained mechanical engineer and Porsche 911 owner never fails to come up with new facts, figures and, above all, photographs, with which this typically sumptuous offering from one of our leading automotive book publishers is particularly well endowed ... most Porsche enthusiasts will regard them as essential additions to their bookshelves." - Speedscene
-

"... takes the reader through a series of racing models, including the glorious 917, up to 1975 via contemporary photography and deeply researched, extremely readable text ..." - Startline
-

"Prolific marque specialist Brian Long is a suitable guide as Veloce brings us two volumes of glorious, if familiar, Porsche racing history. As an introduction to Porsche's racing heritage this is excellent." - Motor Sport
-

"A stunning two-volume set of books detailing Porsche's racing heritage, gloriously illustrated with period photographs." - Racecar Engineering
-

"It's all laid out in great detail, with extensive photography telling as much of this compelling story as the words, a must for any Porschephile." - Vintage Racecar
