More About the Author

ERIC DYMOCK Trained as an engineer in Glasgow, worked in the motor trade, wrote about cars for local newspapers, and joined the road test staff of The Motor in l962. He went freelance in 1965, and for thirteen years travelled the world covering Grand Prix racing for The Guardian, later for The Observer. He was motoring correspondent of Town (Haymarket), 1966-68, News of the World 1973-75, and The Observer, 1980-82.

From 1982 to 1995, he was motoring correspondent of The Sunday Times, with a weekly column that won the Jet Media Excellence Award outright in 1988. He was also a winner of the Guild of Motoring Writers Montagu of Beaulieu Trophy for, "the year's greatest contribution to recording, in the English language, to the history of motoring in a published book."

In 2004 the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers honouring Scots who have achieved excellence in the field of motoring presented him with the Jim Clark Memorial Award. He was nominated for the Ford-supported award for his acclaimed biography of his friend and Scottish motor racing legend, Jim Clark, as well as his motoring column in Scotland on Sunday. The president of the ASMW said: "No other Scottish author has so accurately depicted the tragically short life of Jim Clark. Eric's writing is of a consistently high standard as the large number of best-selling automotive books which carry his name confirms."

A regular contributor to The Glasgow Herald and The Scotsman in the 1960s, between 1974 and 1985 Eric Dymock wrote and researched motoring programmes for BBC2, Thames Television, and the Australian Broadcasting Commission. He was a regular contributor to BBC Radio 4 Going Places, wrote for The Times, Financial Times, and Daily Telegraph motoring sections, and was motoring editor of Sunday Magazine 1982-1985. In 1983-1986 he was motoring editor of Road and Car, the RAC quarterly published by News International with a print run of over 7 million. He worked as classic car consultant for Christie's the auctioneers, and for many years was British correspondent of the authoritative Auto Visie in Holland and was motoring editor of The Business magazine in 2007.

Product Description


Well worth putting on any 4x4 enthusiast's bookshelf; great as a reference tool, but equally enjoyable just to dip in and out. I will be doing both. --Nigel Fyatt, 4x4 Magazine

An enthralling and educational read which charts the history of Land Rover --Stephen Park, The Scottish Herald

My interest in Land Rovers was recently reignited by watching a fascinating Land Rover feature on the internet TV channel Classic Car TV, this book gives lots of interesting background and is well recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Land Rover File 28 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Land Rover File by Eric Dymock 1st ed. A very interesting book about all of the models produced from Land Rover and the history behind them.
A few good deals going on this item at the moment but the amended 2013 print 2nd ed. is a better option if needed new as it has the new models since 2006/7 .
A book for any Land Rover fan

4.0 out of 5 stars Good comprehensive historical reference tome 19 Jun 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this hoping to shed light on the latest Range Rover models and while it did, I felt it did not cover it in sufficient detail as I was hoping it would given it was recently published and would focus on the more recent bits.

What I did find interesting was how extensive it was on the fascinating variety of the many Land Rover models over the years. Great reference that.

Strong 4 stars.

Bought this for a birthday present for a boy mad about land rovers. It's a lovely book with clear pictures and some information on each model. A new model per page. The recipient is absolutely delighted with it and looks at it most days. Arrived promptly too, well packaged.
