...as good to look at as it is to read, with many superb and previously unpublished photographs. -- Autocar, UK, 23rd November 2004

A good read... it manages to remain impartial and entertaining at the same time. -- Classic Car Weekly, UK, 11th November 2004

Clearly nostalgia is still every bit as good as it used to be. Worth every penny. -- 911 & Porsche World, December 2004

From the Inside Flap

Blue And Orange is a wonderful book that brings together for the reader the unique history that Gulf has brought to motor sport. My thanks go to Martin Allerton for co-ordinating the creation of this edition, Michael Cotton for his narrative and Coterie Press for their arrangement and design. I hope that all who take the time to read this book will appreciate the huge efforts of all concerned to create such a memorable and valuable source for this aspect of Gulf’s history. Such a great history throws down the gauntlet to the owners of Gulf Oil International to pick up and continue the story.

If you are interested in the Porsche 917,Ford GT40, McLaren F1 GTR or Steve McQueen, this book is a must The photography and design are so well done-my favourite photo is the moody McQueen shot at the back of the 'Making of Le Mans- the movie' chapter where he is alone in the pit straight at Le Mans,its raining and he is wearing a long raincoat and cap. Its very atmospheric and sums up the style and feeling of the whole book. The design of the book is as impressive as the content and photography. A montage of the photographs can be seen in the latest issue(Ferrari Front cover) of Top Gear magazine P62/63. Thats what encouraged me to buy it.

Don't know about you but I'm generally more interested in cars and drivers than sponsors so a history of Gulf in motorsport didn't really promise much for me. Thing is, the classic Gulf colour scheme is SO evocative and represents the coolest era and the most legendary cars and drivers that this book is indespensible for anyone with an interest in the sport's heyday.
The pictures alone are worth the price - I've been obsessed with GT40's, 917's and anything Steve McQueen related for years and this book is crammed with wonderful images that I've never seen before - if the general subject interests you - go buy the book asap!

Can't believe this book is hard to find by Amazon, managed to pick it up from a rival high street store recently. The book offers plenty and certainly delivers, the text gives a real insight into the racing activities of Gulf but the main selling point has to be the awesome images.
I bought it on the strength of the coverage given to GT40s and 917s (it was the cover that caught my eye!) but was equally impressed by the images of old Miller cars and more recent McLarens. The Steve McQueen section was an added bonus!!!
All round great book, excellent quality and certainly one to look after!

Format: Hardcover
This book is beautifully designed and looks great on my coffee table. I knew a bit about the illustrious history of Gulf Oil in motorsport but was not aware of its origins back in the first half of the 1900s. This is a fascinating read for anyone remotely interested in motorsport – it has facts to feed the fans and an amazing array of evocative photographs to please those of us who just love the look of the cars!
Blue and Orange would make a great Christmas present and would definitely make you very popular with anyone who received it – does Amazon do gift wrapping in blue and orange?

I've purchased this book hoping to take a glimpse at Mclaren GTRs, and it didn't disappoint. The book is well worth the effort. Aside from the Mclarens, there are ample historical photos of Gulf sponsored race cars. The matte pages of the book really complement the artworks. I recommend getting it.
