Tony Maggs

£30.00£38.00

This softcover book by Greg Young is not just a biography of South Africa’s first Formula 1 Grand Prix driver but a general view of motor racing in South Africa in the 1950s and is well illustrated.

Tony Maggs was a very low key figure in grand prix racing and never pushed himself forward. He arrived in Britain in 1959 and bought a Lotus 11 and won his second race with the car at Goodwood. He went back to South Africa with an ex-Ecurie Ecosse Tojeiro-Jaguar but returned and eventually was signed up by Ken Tyrrell to race a Cooper in Formula Junior and in 1961 was offered Louise Bryden-Brown’s Lotus 18 to race at the British Grand Prix finishing 13th and then 11th at Nurburgring. He then had two seasons with Coopers with a brilliant second place to Dan Gurney in the 1962 French Grand Prix before moving to Scuderia Centro Sud driving their Cooper in 1964 , their BRM P57 in 1965 and his final Grand Prix in South Africa with the Reg Parnell Lotus -BRM.

The book was co-written by Bill Jennings, Bruce Johnstone, Eoin Young and a good friend of mine Robert Young from Durban. The book was dedicated to Graham Gauld by Robert Young and contains his hand written corrections.
