Review by Tony Loxley
Following two years of research and passion, my long-awaited tome on the history of the Tasman Cup will soon be released.
Covering 11 years of Australian and New Zealand's greatest motor racing era, 'Tasman Cup - 1964-1975' encapsulates the finest images and some of the greatest stories ever produced in a book covering open-wheel racing.
I am proud that this book also coincides with the 100 years of Anzac; my great-grandfather, 582 John Henry Johnson, 18th Battalion, 2nd Division AIF, having fought at Gallipoli and the Western Front - he survived the war.
Many of the images have never been reproduced in such quality, and the 'first person' accounts of racing in this era, are nothing short of brilliant.
I am sure everyone who sees this book will be suitably impressed with what they have in their hands, and it has been a pleasure recounting these incredible days of yesteryear... Days that we all wish were back here again...
