This is a treat for all genuine touring car fans; a book dedicated to an era in motor racing when cars looked just like the ones found on each and every street corner. Harold Schwarz, an expert on the subject of touring car racing, takes a close look at of the discpline's most exciting eras, the European Touring Car Championship seasons between 1970 and 1975. He vividly describes the battle between the Alfa Romeo, BMW and Ford drivers as they fought it out for the driver and makes championships, takes a look at technical aspects of the cars, and remembers the past heroes of the era. There are untold stories of one of those 'things were better back then' times in the sport, a time when touring car racing was a casual, unsophisticated, and pure. As Australian Frank Gardner, a man who himself made touring car history, used to say... “When the flag drops, the bullshit stops”.
It was a time when ever Formula 1 aces such as Andrea de Adamich, Niki Lauda, Jackie Stewart, Emerson Fittipaldi and Rolf Stommelen would race GTAms, Capris and CSL-Coupés, and race them with such ferocity that the inside front wheel barely touched the ground. This book has a fantastic collection of photos, some which have never previously been seen, which give a fantastic overview of a racing scene that also included the likes of Opel, Fiat and Mazda. The 352-page is now available (in German language only).
