Historic Racing Cars of New Zealand
By Graham Vercoe

New Zealand has a proud history in motorsport and more than its share of driving heroes, but it is the inventiveness and practical ingenuity of generations of backyard builders and amateur mechanics to whom this history pays special tribute. In each of the great eras of our motorsport, extraordinary improvised cars were created by New Zealanders to take on the classic names of international racing - the Bugattis, Alfas, Mercedes, Ferraris, Maseratis, Coopers, Brabhams and Lotuses - brought out by resourceful local importers.

New Zealand became a living museum for the great marques. Long after their international careers were over, they would be: raced here in the manner for which they were created. Sadly, the very high value placed on these rare cars saw most of them eventually sold overseas. Their stories are documented in Historic Racing Cars of New Zealand, the first comprehensive A to Z of New Zealand historic racing. Most of the data was gleaned directly from the drivers, mechanics, owners and the great racing car builders themselves.
