Abstract:

The 1960s and '70s were the golden years of motor racing and Phil Kerr was part of that world. This book tells the inside story of those years - the triumphs and the tragedies, the deals and the disasters. From Phil's early years in Auckland and his teenage friendship with Bruce McLaren, through their first years away from New Zealand achieving better and greater things in motor sport, and on to the inside workings of those two great racing teams, Brabham Racing Organisation and Bruce McLaren Motor Racing. The text is accompanied by plentiful colour and black and white photos, many never published before. This is the story of the great and legendary teams in Grand Prix Formula One, Can-Am and the Indy 500. But there is a strong NZ connection as Phil and Bruce were both proud Kiwis and many of their team members (including other world-famous drivers like Denny Hulme) were Kiwis as well.
