Few can claim that their racing careers spanned the greatest decades in sports-car competition- the 1960s and 1970s- and then extended into the 1980s. John Horsman is one of the fortunate few. The blue-and-orange Gulf-sponsored Ford GT40s, Mirages, and Porsche 917s prepared by Horsman and his team are among the most famous race cars ever produced. The team excelled everywhere and was particularly adept in wet-weather conditions. Horsman’s vivid personal account takes you to the world’s greatest racing circuits and puts you alongside the drivers and the crew as you experience astonishing wins, and Horsman’s solution to the Porsche 917′s handling problems. The details provided in the behind-the-scenes operation of the team are phenomenal, spanning everything from the operating budget of the GT40 program to the tire pressures used in the winning cars at Le Mans.
