SOLD to Canada: Ecurie Ecosse – David Murray
Description: This is THE book about Ecurie Ecosse by the founder and driver David Murray. A highly sought after and extremely interesting read. This book covers the years in which a back-street garage in Scotland ‘grows’ up to be a legendary racing team with the incredible high-light of winning the Le Mans 24 hours race in 1956. Team members Ron Flockhart and Ninian Sanderson were the winning drivers in a Jaguar D-Type. This and all the ins-and-outs about the Ecurie Ecosse are described with verve and colour by David Murray. The team people of Ecurie Ecosse were founder/ driver David Murray, founder/ mechanic Wilkie Wilkinson and the founder/ drivers Ian Stewart, Jimmy Stewart, Leslie Thorne. Other drivers Jim Clark, Innes Ireland, Masten Gregory, Ron Flockhart, Ninian Sanderson, Roy Salvadori, Ivor Bueb, John Lawrence and Jack Fairman.
EXTRA: This book comes with two SIGNED photographs! Signed by the founding member/ driver IAN STEWART (15 july 1929 – 19 March 2017).
This book is in excellent condition for its age. The text block is firm, the hardcover shows a bump to the bottom of the front board and a slight bump to the upper corner. The first owners name is stamped (subtle) on the first white page. This person was involved with the Dutch Zandvoort Circuit when this book was published! Slight tanning to the pages, NO foxing. The dust cover is GOOD with some creases and some tiny missing parts on the extreme edges. The dust jacket is now protected by a high quality Brodart polyester film archival jacket cover. This is a highly collectible book! Study the photos carefully, they form part of the description. “Enjoy the Ride!”
