Even if you're not into the Celica GT Four, it's a good book. If you're into 1990s rallying, you should buy it. Robson does a good job at making what could be a heavy going subject easy to read and understand. - ToyotaTuner.com
Thanks to writer Graham Robson's usual encyclopaedic collection of facts and photos and easy style of expressing himself I feel I know all about this pretty Japanese coupé ... This is definitely another volume for the bookshelf. --Motor Cycling Club
About the Author
Graham Robson possesses a world-wide reputation as a motoring historian, and has been close to the sport of rallying for many years. Not only as a competitor, team manager, organiser, reporter, commentator and observer, but above all as an enthusiastic historian, in more than forty years he has never lost touch with the sport. His experience of rallying is worldwide. Not only has he competed in many British and European events, but reported on marathons in South America, and acted as a travelling controller in the legendary London-Mexico World Cup rally. As a recognised authority on many aspects of classic cars and motoring of that period, he is the most prolific of all authors, with more than 120 published books to his credit. Over the years he has owned, driven, described and competed in many of the cars featured in this Landmark Rally Cars series, and his insight into their merits is unmatched.

There are mistakes in the text, but how serious this is will depend on how much you already know and care. In the context of the price (not much more than a couple of magazines) and the range of similar books, it is a welcome addition about an under appreciated car.
As a Celica fanatic I found some parts of this book less than flatering in describing the car. At other times it even gives the impression that the TTE rallying campain was unsucessful,contrasting with the number of championship wins achieved.
Maybe Im only left with this impression because I have a production version of the car that got TTE "baned" for a year and caused the demise of the Celica in rallying. However this book is a very good read and as far as I can see fully covers the GT four/TTE WRC history.
