A better story to come...?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Toleman Story: Last Romantics in Formula 1 (Hardcover)
As the previous reviewer has said, this does not give a 'race by race'guide. There are probably places on the web where one can find out this sort of information. This is instead a very condensed view of how the Toleman Group came to be in Formula One as a very small fish in a big ocean, the upstarts struggling against the odds. So it does not contain lots of facts and figures, but attempts to give an overview of what drove the directors of a car delivery company to set up their own racing team.
So, I would not say this book is a waste of money by any means - just be aware that you are buying the story of a quirky, unique little racing team, and not a long list of technical data on cars, or results, or lap times.
However, I can only hope that one day someone will write the REAL Toleman story - the story of the family, the business, the involvement in powerboats, the Branson connection, the complex characters of the men at the top, and the dreadful tragedies that followed. Now THAT would be some book....
