Author(s): Eoin Young

Sports & Athletics | Secondhand

New Zealand has a great tradition in motorsport, epitomised by the hugely successful McLaren F1 racing team. Eoin Young has been there through the best of the glory years, and in Classic Racers he profiles some of the most talented drivers this country has produced. Of course Bruce McLaren, Denny Hulme and Chris Amon feature, but so do lesser known drivers like Howden Ganley, Ron Roycroft, Ross Jensen, Tom Clark, Johnny Mansel, Ernie Sprague, Bill Hamilton and Norman Smith, one-time contender for the world land speed record. And from the days when the likes of Stirling Moss came to compete in New Zealand during the summer, Eoin writes of classic Grands Prix and the cars associated with them, such as the famous Lycoming Special, Tazio Nuvolari
