-

"A wealth of period, previously unreleased images evoke the fascinating atmosphere and excitement of the great seventies racing era." – Startline

"It's all here: race reports and results and technical developments (well translated from the original German), even a chapter on the 914 with a 908 motor that was produced for Ferry Porsche's 60th birthday!
