We're big fans of Brian Redman here at Duke. Along with Vic Elford and Derek Bell he seems to embody the spirit of sportscar racing as it was for British drivers at the cutting edge in the '70s and '80s.
We're very pleased to see this new book from Brian which brings back to life his most successful period, from '68 to '73. These six years saw him win the 1970 Targa Florio with a Porsche 908 and the Spa-Francorchamps 1000km race 4 times (1968–1970, 1972) - so there's plenty of meat on the bone, so to speak.
Here's what his publisher has to say about the book: “Packed with
photographs, Redman's memoir is a vivid account of his varied racing exploits,
with special focus on the period 1968-73 when he won major sports car races in
Ford GT40s, Porsche 908s and 917s, and Ferrari 312PBs. Highly readable, and at
times both humorous and poignant, this is a very personal book that will be
welcomed by this popular and highly respected driver's legions of fans.”
