What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
Classic American (UK), June 2007

“If circuit racing like the WTCC floats your boat but you prefer a bit more GT and V8 and a bit less GTi and FWD, then this book should be right up your pit lane.”

 

Evening Standard (UK), June 1, 2007

“[Friedman’s] superb informal photographs help capture the human side [of GT racing], the approach to race day, winning and losing, politics and the emergence and evolution of today’s top GT racing teams.”
