Top Customer Reviews
It's a tale of long hours, stretched budgets, muckups, triumphs, recalcitrant machinery and above all of passion for the sport and of teamwork.
Dowse put a lot of his own time and money into the team, and his account is highly personal. There are passages that make uncomfortable reading - his relationship with one of the team's principal backers became highly strained and the anger Dowse felt over this is very clear in his book.
As an unvarnished account of what it takes just to get onto the grid in modern sports car racing this is a fascinating book. Definitely of interest to Morgan fans, sports car or Le Mans enthusiasts, and indeed anyone interested in a story of strong characters working against tough deadlines.
David Dowse does an excellent job of detailing the trials and tribulations that the Morgan Works experienced in an attempt to complete unfinished business, to finish at Le Mans.
The book briefly discusses the 1962 class victory that Morgan won with the Plus 4, but 98% of the book is devoted to the story of the Aero 8 racing at Le Mans from its race debut in 2002 through to when it rolled over the finish line to a roaring crowd in 2004.
Its an excellent read, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
