The book celebrates the 60th anniversary of CAMS and doesn’t shy away from controversial pieces of history such as death threats to prominent administrators, the discovery of bugging devices in an executive’s office, bankruptcies, litigation, disqualification of international teams and the reversal of a world championship on the evidence of an Australian official.
Among its revelations are how V8 Supercars came into existence, how a quest to bring three world championships to Australia in one year broke the bank of the country’s largest car club, and how the greatest Aussie F1 driver got the nickname ‘Black Jack’.
“It is a must-read for all motor sport enthusiasts and a must-keep for all involved in the management of motor sport at any level,” CAMS chief executive officer Eugene Arocca said.
“It opens up on the personalities – the triumphs and trials – of some of the best drivers, officials and administrators, and covers events from the first ever motor race to the first Grands Prix.”
The book is available from the CAMS bookshop at camsshop.shopdesq.com for $99 (including postage) and all proceeds go to the CAMS Foundation for talented young drivers.
