To com­plete the book’s ti­tle, one must add ‘How Ford si­lenced the crit­ics, hum­bled Fer­rari and con­quered Le Mans’, though any­one reach­ing this prob­a­bly knows the leg­end al­ready. Cel­e­brat­ing the 50th an­niver­sary of the onetwo-three tri­umph of 1966, this lav­ish hard­back main­tains a fast pace with Lerner’s easy, col­lo­quial style and am­ple pho­tog­ra­phy from Shelby Amer­i­can’s of­fi­cial pho­tog­ra­pher of the era, Dave Fried­man. A lot of di­a­logue fea­tures, and from de­vel­op­ment to stun­ning suc­cess a sur­pris­ingly short timescale is cov­ered in cin­e­matic vi­su­al­i­sa­tion. The smell of the pages is soon dis­placed by the smell of the pit­lane. A fit­ting trib­ute for a gold an­niver­sary of a leg­end that in no small part can be con­sid­ered a Bri­tish suc­cess as much as an Amer­i­can one.
