Overview

In motorsports there have been an endless series of performance advances where one wonders, how did they ever figure that out? Other times one asks, how did they not see this when the answer was there for all to see? These are the stories of discovery by 3 generations of racers and designers, who changed the state of the art forever. It is also the story of clever tricks and rule book interpretation to win the ever-escalating contest between rule makers and loophole seekers, told by those directly involved in Formula One, Le Mans, Indycar, IMSA, Moto GP, Trans-Am, Can-Am, and NASCAR. Their innovations dazzled us all.

Editorial Reviews

personal endorsement - Jack Roush

"Norm DeWitt has created a transparent look at what goes on behind the scenes of competitive and contentious motorsports in our generation. He could not have chosen a more relevant and deserving porthole for this look see than one of the all time great leaders and technicians in the sport of automobile racing than my good friend Danny Binks. A true Racer!"

Audi Sport - Ulrich Baretzky

"The Book has arrived just for Christmas, so I had a Little time to read. It is a very well written, with very deep going Research work. Thank you again."

Grand Prix Mechanic - Mike Sinclair

"This is a great insight into the complexities of the 'Set-up' and having spent 3 decades chasing the perfect set up in GP Motorcycle racing it's nice to be able to read about the chase in the 4 wheel world. I always followed Indy Car via AutoSport magazine and the Rick Mears section is excellent.
I also have a new found respect for LeMans thanks to the book giving me a look inside. Good book, buy it!"
