Thanks Bill, much appreciated - I hadn't heard of that one.I'll add it to the list.

It's the number on the book, together with "ISBN 1-900732-05-X", but this does not lead to finding the book with Google or Amazon (looks like the publisher got it wrong, or failed to register the correct number). Googling > "world sports car journal" volume 1 < brings up one copy on Amazon.

Hallo All,

We all know that the books written by Chris Chapman and Jake Alderson are of a very high standard. The last three books they wrote The Early Years, The Heritage Years 1954-1960 and The Lawrence Tune Years 1961-1964 are still available. Melvyn Rutter has them on the shelf. I spoke by Email with Jake, Chris and Melvyn. They say that there will be an interesting discount if you buy one or even better all three books.

I know from my personal experience that they are really good. Perfect in detail! At the moment, if I have some spare time, I ready the last one The Lawrence Tune Years, now I understand the history line much better, names, once mention by Mary and John came to life (thanks for that), and it's so great to read about the race activities from people who are still with us.

My advice: a really good X-Mas present,

Machiel.
