The Drivers is the first in a fascinating series of books that capture the remarkable legacy of New Zealand motor sports' past, and indeed its future, by looking at the individual drivers on four wheels that made New Zealand famous all over the world.
In a tiny country with limited resources it is all the more amazing that New Zealand has such a richness of history in the global motor-racing arena. Names like McLaren, Hulme, Amon, Murphy and Dixon and up-and- coming drivers like Jonny Reid and Matt Halliday have made an impression on the media at home and overseas. Many other highly skilled drivers have made international history yet barely created a ripple in their home country's psyche.
The Drivers celebrates the contribution of Kiwi racers' exploits to New Zealand's outstanding reputation in international motor sport from the early 1920s to the present day.
