Subtitled: The Ron Tauranac Story. British-born, but brought up in Australia, Ron Tauranac always preferred to let his cars sing his praises where it really mattered - on the race tracks of the world. Many of Tauranacs former colleagues and customers speak candidly about the man they have known and worked with, someone who has never courted popularity, but whose talents have been such that his contribution to the motor racing scene is possibly beyond measure. Foreword by Sir Jack Brabham.
