New Book Announcements from V8 Sleuth

The following books have just been announced and you can preorder now.

Preorders close Monday 9th August and you need to supply your phone number.

BATHURST EVERY CAR, THE PHOTOGRAPHIC HISTORY 1990-1999 $80

Email Us

THE first of an exciting new book series from the V8 Sleuth team, ‘Bathurst: Every Car, The Photographic History, 1990-1999’ is a must-have for any motorsport fan.

This 256-page hardcover collector’s book brings to life ‘The Great Race’ in the 1990s and, at its core, includes a photo of every single car to compete in the Bathurst 1000 in the 1990s across the Group A, five-litre V8, Super Touring and V8 Supercar categories.

In addition to the cars that took the start on race day, this book also includes images of those cars that didn’t start the race despite taking part in practice and/or qualifying. Spare ‘test/training’ cars from the early 1990s are also included.

This series of books has been inspired by V8 Sleuth’s sold-out books from previous years documenting every Holden and every Ford to compete in the Bathurst 1000.

In addition to Holden and Ford, a variety of manufacturers take centre stage within the pages of this book focused on the 1990s. BMW, Toyota, Nissan, Audi, Volvo and many more will bring readers many amazing memories of the cars that have tackled Mount Panorama.

Also included in the special publication is:

  • Information on each car’s photo, with driver names, team names, make and model, race times, qualifying times and positions and assorted notes listed for each.
  • An introduction chapter for each year’s race, from the 1990 Tooheys 1000 right through to the 1999 FAI 1000.
  • A dedicated statistical section breaking down the achievers in the Bathurst ‘Great Race’ from 1990 to 1999.

As a special bonus, the 1999 Bob Jane T-Marts Bathurst 500 for Super Tourers is also included in the book alongside the 1000-kilometre races with images of every car from that often over-looked race.

This is a unique Bathurst book that is a must-have for the collection of hardcore and casual motorsport and Bathurst 1000 fans alike.

This book is the first in a new series of publications by the V8 Sleuth team that will focus on the history of the Bathurst ‘Great Race’ by decade and based upon the ‘every car, every race’ format.

NEIL CROMPTON: BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE BOOK $40

Email Us

Racer and broadcaster Neil Crompton has had the best seat in the house for the last 40 years of Australian motorsport, an amazing lifetime upgrade to a first-hand, front row seat to see the biggest names, machines and events of this high-speed, high-octane sport.

Now, in his first book written with his friend Aaron Noonan, Neil tells the story of his amazing journey in motorsport that has taken him from humble beginnings to rubbing shoulders with the biggest names in world and national motorsport.

A kid from Ballarat in country Victoria obsessed by speed with an undying passion to pursue a career in the sport, Neil ended up finding his way to lining up on the grid at the biggest race in Australia, the Bathurst 1000, driving for a team run by his childhood hero, Peter Brock.

Since then he’s raced wheel-to-wheel with some of the biggest stars the sport has ever seen in this country and experienced first-hand the thrilling success, heartbreaking disappointment and emotional trauma that is a life spent in motorsport and the relentless pursuit of the ultimate success.

Uniquely, Neil has spent his entire career either driving a race car, a microphone or sometimes both. As the trusted and respected modern-day voice and face of Supercars racing on television in Australia, he’s added the audio soundtrack from the commentary box to some of the biggest spine-tingling moments in the sport and is well qualified to offer his account of the who, what and where of Aussie motorsport.

From navigating for Dame Edna Everage at the Adelaide Grand Prix to driving some of the fastest race cars in the world and everything in between, he has been there and seen it all.

Best Seat In The House is Neil’s account of an amazing period of the sport from a unique viewing position like no other.

This 352 page hardcover book is published by Harper Collins.
