Books - and where to get them
Europameisterschaft 1970-1975 - "The book I always wanted to write" as
I told the editor when we had contact a while ago.
But Harold Schwarz beat me to it, and perhaps that's a blessing in disguise...
The book (in German) is full of pictures - a lot of them I have never seen before - and background stories, told by the ones who were involved. The championship back then was mainly a German prestige fight, the writer is German, but the book doesn't forget the others; both Toine Hezemans and Autodelta receive the attention they are entitled to, just like Chevrolet, Abarth, Mazda and all the others who made a great championship.
And for a tiny piece, the book is mine after all: research and statistics were helped by touringcarracing.net
For the ones who don't speak German: the pictures alone make the book worthwhile!
