Contents:
Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary: 1967 is a carefully crafted look at what it was like, as well as what it took, to be a Grand Prix driver at the end of the era that immediately preceded slick tyres and wings, full-face helmets, effective fire-resistant clothing, self-sealing fuel lines and other safety devices. Using Chris Amon's 1967 season as a base, John Julian has interviewed several 1960s Grand Prix drivers, along with the family and friends of others sadly lost to us. Employing a little literary licence, he has drawn an attractive and realistic sketch that features other characters from the period as well as suggestions that give the flavour of 1967, such as which music might best accompany parts of the text, depending upon the month and the country in which the race is being run.
