Summary

In 1962 a small Morgan sports car TOK258 created history by defeating factory teams run by leading international manufacturers in the famous 24 hour race at the Le Mans circuit. The car crossed the finishing line on Sunday 24th June having completed 2256 miles in the twenty four hours from the start time on Saturday afternoon to win the 2 litre GT class. Although privately owned, the car was entered and supported by the Morgan Motor Company and driven by Chris Lawrence and Richard Shepherd-Barron. This new colour 50th anniversary edition of the original book by Ronnie Price, now with racing driver Richard Shepherd-Barron as co-author, covers the concept, preparation, and official testing at the circuit. It gives a blow-by-blow account of the race, with anecdotes, memorabilia, material and photographs only recently made available.
