What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
Overdrive Magazine, April 2007

“A must-have for Impreza fans.”

Review from Overdrive magazine, April 2007
Indian magazine

The Subaru Impreza is known the world over as a racing thoroughbred. Renowned auto historian Graham Robson and Veloce Publishing have put together an ode to the Impreza for aficionados to revel in.

The Subaru blue portrait splashed on the cover is an eye catcher. The birth of the Impreza is unveiled in elaborate detail with styling cues, engine details and a myriad aspects are laid out comprehensively.

The reader is treated to a stunning portfolio of photographs of the car in action, even as one is furnished with data on the competition the Impreza was up against.The Flat 4 engine, and how it gradually evolved has been elaborated on – a surefire highlight of the book.

Author Graham Robson has given the daredevils behind the wheel their due, with not just what they accomplished on track, but dispensing little known personal details as well.

Robson provides an overview of the Impreza era that began in 1993, the changes made to the car and how it all worked. But that's not all, as the reader is furnished insight into the Impreza successor as well. Robson spotlights the Impreza's victorious reign in an easy to decipher chart.

The volume also affords a canny glimpse into the world of rallying. The book acknowledges the sterling efforts of Prodrive of England, involved with works competition cars since advent, for furnishing the expertise and knowhow that paved the way to glory for the Impreza.

A must-have for Impreza fans.

It’s three for the price of one this time as I have been reading the Ford Escort Mk1, Subaru Impreza and Lancia Stratos in the Rally Giants series, written by Graham Robson and published by Veloce and thoroughly recommend all three volumes. Priced at $14.99, each has an interesting 8 x 8in format with about 125 pages containing lots of well chosen pictures, mostly in color, so looks impressive enough for the coffee table, yet due to the author’s experience and attention to getting his facts right must have a place in the serious enthusiast’s bookshelves, from whence they will frequently be taken as a source of reference.

What I really enjoyed most though is the way in which Graham has made a readable tale from what so easily could have been equally factual but totally boring. The author knew and worked in the rally world with the people and events he describes so brings out their characters and the behind the scenes action not always appreciated at the time.
