Corvette Racing: The Complete Competition History from Sebring to Le Mans Reviews
This book was a gift for my father- the content is very interesting, focusing on the unique history that Corvette's have in the history of racing, which is often looked over. My father used this for inspiration on his '69 stingray, focusing on the aerodynamics explained in the book. My only complaint is that it came with the cover on upside down and it was very difficult to flip and place the book back in.
I found this book to be good overall in covering the story of Corvette road racing up to the 2010 year.
Great book on Corvette racing covering many of the years. Pictures and information outstanding for reference work. A well suited book for my library.
Kimble's cutaway art is unsurpassed, and his love for Corvette's shows through! It was about time someone wrote a book on Corvette's modern racing era. Don't miss this one!
My husband loves the book it has a lot of good tips--Mary
Great book highly detailed-- quick shipping.
