Description

In 1997, Australia's high-profile touring-car formula became V8 Supercars, and the Australian motor-racing landscape changed forever. In the years since, the V8 category, based on home-grown vehicles and Australia's unique racetracks, has evolved from a local sport to an international spectacle dominated at this point by two manufacturers: Holden and Ford. Today, the series fields eighteen teams at each of the year's fourteen rounds. V8 Supercars The whole story is an exciting and detailed account of the history of the sport so far. It chronicles the key players, race circuits in Australia and overseas, political controversies, loyalty debates, team-ownership disputes and on-track clashes, and asks some important questions about the future. It includes find thirteen Fact Pages with exclusive behind-the-scenes images from a number of premier V8 Supercar teams.show more
