For your consideration today we are pleased to offer "The Stainless Steel Carrot An Auto Racing Odyssey – Revisited" by Sylvia Wilkinson.

While supplies last, signed by author Sylvia Wilkinson, championship driver John Morton, and BRE team owner/manager Peter Brock !!!! This listing guarantees the winnerthis multi-autographed copy!

The exploits of the BRE race team from 1970-72 were well-chronicled in Sylvia Wilkinson’s now legendary book from the period, The Stainless Steel Carrot. Long out of print and still highly sought after, Sylvia finally succumbed to pleas from fans of that era to reprint the book. She has done that, and consistent with her pursuit of excellence Sylvia has updated the book to include exciting new additions!

A refresher on the original book: in 1971 Wilkinson, already a successful author, decided to write a book about an aspiring race car driver. John Morton. Having just won the 1970 National SCCA C Production Championship in a BRE 240Z, he became her subject. Peter Brock, BRE team owner and manager, allowed Sylvia full access to the team.

In this 2012 reprint we're offering today, an additional 46 page chapter is included that catches up with the BRE team members, finding out what they think now of the BRE then and, knowing what they know now, asking how they feel today about the era and how motorsports has changed.

The book, of course, contains the original text and photos plus the additions above, including more than 150 photos! (a nice mix of both color and black&white).The Stainless Steel Carrot shares, without prejudice, the trials and tribulations of the era’s top race team, reaching for the Trans-Am 2.5 Championship and their hopes to rise to even greater heights with the “Stainless Steel Carrot”, BRE’s Lotus Formula 5000. The magic Sylvia pulls off is to neutralize any voice of the author. The book grabs the reader from their own perspective. If the reader has some experience in management, they are apt to empathize with Brock’s struggles to guide a team of talented, opinionated individuals. If the reader is an engineer, the plight of the mechanics may gain their focus. The main subject of the book of course, is championship driver John Morton. His insight has all drivers and wanna-be drivers on the edge of their seats waiting to see what he will do and how he’ll deal with adversity next. Wilkinson’s is a book highly respected by those in the racing community, as witnessed by the fact that introductions by Dan Gurney and Parnelli Jones are included in this second edition.
