Terrific tale about the mysterious and controversial Don Nichols and the cars he created, by a writer who saw them race and interviewed ‘The Man in Black’ late in life. Shadows rarely won but looked great, while Nichols’ backstory of shady deals and espionage couldn’t be richer.
A photo book to wallow in. Wonderful emotive images spanning from the 1950s to the ’70s and covering 75 European circuits and hillclimbs. The action is great, but it’s the paddock and pits and off-duty shots that really captivate, and all are luxuriously presented. Joscelyne combined technical skill with his racer’s eye to give fascinating pictures.
