HSRCA member Terry Wright has just released ‘Power Without Glory: Racing the Big-Twin Cooper’, which looks like a great read for anyone interested in the origins of our sport.
Researched across Europe, written and designed in Sydney and finally printed and distributed in Suffolk, Loose Fillings has just published its first book, Power Without Glory: Racing the Big-twin Cooper by Terry Wright.
The book revisits the origins of the modern racing car, whose pedigree can be traced back to dirt track cars in America, cyclecars in Europe and the record-breaking motorcycles of Britain. It shows how these influenced the first Coopers and how they went on to win the drivers’ and constructors’ world titles in 1959 and 1960.
For anyone interested in historic motorsport and the history of motorsport, this looks like an essential addition to the library. Download their flyer here [PDF] for more information.
The Loose Fillings team have also just finished a new website, where they’ll be sharing their wonderful stories covering historic air-cooled racing cars and the immediate post World War 2 revolution in racing car design. Check it out at www.loosefillings.com.
‘Power Without Glory: Racing the Big-Twin Cooper is available to buy online at loosefillings.com.
