9781845845360: Inspired to Design: F1 cars, Indycars & racing tyres: the autobiography of Nigel Bennett

The differences between running an Indy car on a road circuit and an oval are covered, as is the struggle to get the best from a car for the Indy 500 - a task which is described with unusual clarity. Nigel also describes the story of the ‘Big Beast’ – the Mercedes pushrod engine that won the 1994 Indy 500.

Sharing in detail his own view of the importance of suspension geometry, and how it deviates from present practices, this book also includes personal views on the Penske years from a number of motor sport figures, and those of a rival Indy car designer Bruce Ashmore. A fascinating first-hand behind-the-scenes insight.

Included in the story is considerable detail of Nigel’s eight years spent with the Firestone European Racing Division, covering an area vital to racing car performance, plus the relationship between a tyre company and its leading contracted team. The 60s and 70s were rife with tyre wars, and many interesting stories unfolded during those decades. With descriptions of the importance of the Race Engineer to the driver, and to a team’s competitiveness, Nigel Bennett draws on his years of experience to offer detailed insight to how an engineer worked with a car and tuned its set-up in an era before computer readouts and telemetry came to dominate.

Review:

"This is much more than just a dry ‘and then I did this' biog. Instead, you get a real feel for what it was like to be on the front line ... a cracking read." - Octane



"A brilliant account of what it's like to work in Formula One and the IndyCar series ... incredibly honest" - Auto Express



"This book provides a fascinating insight into that period of F1 development, and the role Lotus played in moving the goal posts a considerable distanceforward ... an interesting read and gives an insiders view of Lotus, Formula One and Champ cars - recommended." - Historic Lotus
