Racing: A History of Motorsport in New Zealand
By Ross Mackay

From climbs and reliability trials early in the twentieth century to drag racing and drifting one hundred years later, New Zealanders have always loved to race their cars each other. Almost as soon as motorised vehicles arrived here, Kiwis wanted to get behind the wheel and complete against each other’

This book tells the story of the development of those races, in all their glory and with all the dust, dirt, fumes and burning rubber that are entailed.

Ross MacKay has been involved in the local motorsport scene since his early teens. He started competing on two wheels before going on to national-level competition on four - first in karts, then the Formula First and Pro7 classes. Along the way he has developed a parallel career as a journalist, publicist and author.
