David McKay has a unique place in the post-WW2 history of motor sport in Australia. His is one of the most widely known names in motor racing, yet his role in shaping the sport in post-war Australia is still largely unrecognised.
In this book he writes very much as the ‘expert observer’, having not only been a motoring writer for magazines and daily newspapers, but also a trials driver and navigator, winner of two major Australian racing championships, holder of an Australian land speed record and founder of Australia’s first professional motor racing team.
In his Scuderia Veloce team, invited international champions such as Graham Hill, Jackie Stewart, Chris Amon, Jim Palmer, Derek Bell and Andy Buchanan joined local drivers including Norm Beechey, John Youl, Brian Foley, Greg Cusack, Brian Muir, Spencer Martin, Phil West, Bill Brown and Pete and Leo Geoghegan.
