Peter Sut­cliffe’s fore­word bills this as ‘with­out doubt the de­fin­i­tive work on these cars’, so the bar for suc­cess is set pretty high. Archer and Candee clear it, cov­er­ing the GT’S de­vel­op­ment, engi­neer­ing and rac­ing ex­ploits in im­pres­sive de­tail – and cat­a­logu­ing ev­ery GT chassis, too. It’s cer­tainly more ref­er­ence than light read­ing (not least be­cause it weighs 5kg), but the rec­ol­lec­tions of inim­itable rac­ing team man­ager John Wyer and oth­ers add colour through­out.
