Carrera – this term is as much part of the Porsche vocabulary as is “Turbo” or “911”. lt roots in a race win of a Porsche 550 Spyder at the legendary Carrera Panamericana in Mexico in 1954. The racing engine they used was unique: termed “Carrera motor”, it became part of automobile history. The remarkably powerful engine with four camshafts, constructed by Dr. Ernst Fuhrmann, was used successfully in a row of famous Porsche racing cars, from the 356 Carrera to the 550 and 718 Spyder to the 904 Carrera GTS. The Porsche archive and two exceptional authors worked together on the history of this racing engine and its cars. The volume is enriched with lots of previously unpublished documents and photos from the factory’s archive, plus interviews with directly involved contemporary witnesses. Moreover, is presented every single race of all Porsche racing cars with Carrera engine- there where about 14 000 – so that this book gives the first full account on the history of those races. ln doing so, he gained a full documentation of all chassis and engine numbers with condition on delivery and motorsports’ history. Undoubtedly, this bilingual reference book will cause a great sensation in the Porsche community worldwide.

ALFA ROMEO TIPO 33/1967 (di P.Dasse)

This book focuses exclusively on the development of the Tipo 33 and the motorsport activities of the car during 1967. It was a long held belief that there was only scarce documentation available concerning Autodelta, the motorsport company. With the help of Dr. Marco Fazio we were able to unearth various diverse records from the Alfa Romeo archives which contained detailed reports of the race activities of Autodelta. With such records to hand we were able to build an complete picture, free of any doubt, of the cars that participated in races during 1967 in the works team. In addition to the racing participation of the Tipo 33 we have also covered aspects of the Tipo 33 Stradale and the related Alfa Romeo OSI Scarabeo.  Work on a second book covereing the 1968 racing season is currently under way and is planned for release in 2019.
