Alpine & Renault by Roy Smith
Sports prototype racing is about endurance, for the drivers, for the teams and for the companies involved. In this story we see the effort, the blood, the sweat and the tears, reputations won and lost, life and also death. ; in the case of Alpine, it had a passion and dedication for racing over a long period with stunningly beautiful, creative, slippery aerodynamic designs that allowed it to take many class wins and outright victories in championship racing, and ultimately the Le Mans 24 hours. You will feel the passion and dedication for racing from interviews with the men involved over the many long hard years, illustrated with dramatic period photographs.
