V8 Supercars is a great Australian sporting success story, still going strong for over a quarter of a century. It was the first local race series to gain a mainstream national following, catapulting the likes of Peter Brock and Dick Johnson to fame against the backdrop of Mount Panorama, Bathurst. These days the sport draws huge crowds, attracts big-dollar TV rights deals and a new generation of heroes have appeared battling over old territory, plus a host of new street circuits, turning this Australian motor sport into a globally recognised phenomenon.
The V8s have evolved into today's Supercars Championship, creating household megastars such as Craig Lowndes, Marcos Ambrose, Jamie Whincup and Scott McLaughlin. Supercars gives detailed insight into how each and every championship was won, tracking the development of the Supercars class between 1993-2010.
This comprehensive and absorbing account of a uniquely Australian sport is a must for any race fan's bookshelf.
