RECOMMENDE­D READ: THE IROC PORSCHES

-

Congratula­tions to Classic Porsche and 911 & Porsche World contributo­r,

Matt Stone, on the release of his latest book, The IROC Porsches, a 192-page chronicle of the original IROC 1973/74 season, in which the world’s top race car pilots — from fields including F1, Indycar, NASCAR and Sports Car Racing — battled in identical 911 RSRS to claim the title of World’s Greatest Racing Driver. Presented as a luxury hardback and featuring 200 colour photos, Stone’s coffee table tome delivers one of the most detailed accounts of the IROC era to date. Recalling the thrill of each race, documentin­g the fortunes of each participat­ing car and providing unique insight through interviews with key personnel (including IROC’S star drivers, such as George Follmer, who provides the book with a captivatin­g foreword), Stone manages to entertain and educate at the same time, while the book’s uncluttere­d design allows the many never-before-seen images and period advertisin­g materials to breathe without sacrificin­g space for the key informatio­n on offer, including the history of each IROC RSR from new until the present day. A must-have book for all fans of air-cooled 911s and Porsche motorsport. And, for a limited time, Stone’s publisher, Motorbooks, is offering a massive 27% discount when this book is ordered direct from Amazon.
