The story is told mainly through the hundreds of period photos and in the words of the main protagonists themselves -- the incomparable racers Percy Tait, and Gary Nixon in the USA, the racing team including Les Williams and Arthur Jakeman for example, and also the privateers 'special' builders such as David Kirby, Rob Prior and Mick Hemmings amongst many others.
