de Roy Smith, Veloce mars 2010, 208 pages 25 x 25 cm, couverture rigide sous jaquette, 300 photos. Texte anglais.

Sports prototype racing is about endurance, for the drivers, for the teams and for the companies involved. In this story we see the effort, the blood, the sweat and the tears, reputations won and lost, life and also death. The cars, some of the most evocative ever seen, are described in detail. We see stunningly beautiful, creative, slippery aerodynamic designs that allowed Alpine to take many class wins and outright victories in championship racing, from 1963 to 1969. You will feel the passion and dedication for racing from interviews with the men involved, illustrated with dramatic period photographs
Sports prototype racing is about endurance, for the drivers, for the teams and for the companies involved. In this story we see the effort, the blood, the sweat and the tears, reputations won and lost, life and also death. The cars were some of the most evocative ever seen, in the case of Alpine they had a passion and dedication for racing over a long period with stunningly beautiful, creative, slippery aerodynamic designs that allowed them to take many class wins and outright victories in championship racing, and in volume 2 ultimately under Renault ownership a victory at Le Mans, which had been its target since 1963. This story covers every race from 1963 to 1969 it includes races in the USA, and in the Far East, the Targa Florio and the prestigious Le Mans 24 hours. Le Mans and the marketing opportunities it can provide to the major car companies are vast. Victory at Le Mans is the ultimate target.
