THE DRIV­ERS

New Zealand Classic Car - - Feature - BY TIM NEVINSON

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-and­com­ing 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.
