Alpine & Renault Volume 1 by Roy Smith
Sports prototype racing is about endurance, for the drivers, for the teams and for the companies involved. In this first volume of Alpine and Renault - The Sports Prototypes we see the effort, the blood, the sweat and the tears, reputations won and lost, life and also death.
Alpine 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 a few outright victories in championship racing, and ultimately, under Renault ownership and a new V6 turbo engine, outright victory at Le Mans (see volume 2). Here you will feel the passion and dedication for racing from interviews with the men involved over the many long hard years, countless innovations, the coming of radial and slick tyres, and successes and failures, all illustrated with dramatic period photographs.
