This book tells the full story of the Tyrrell Racing team from the perspective of one of its photographers. First established in 1958 by Ken Tyrrell with Formula 3 and Formula 2 cars, success soon came to Tyrrell in the 1967 German Grand Prix, when Jacky Ickx won the F.2 class in a Matra MS7. In 1968, Jackie Stewart won three Grands Prix driving a Matra MS10. The following year, Jackie Stewart and Tyrrell would win the World Championship with the Matra MS80. The author conveys all the excitement of these heady days in both words and illustrations. The book also describes the transition from other manufacturers’ cars to one developed by Tyrrell itself which opened the 1970s with instant success, winning both the Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championships in 1971. Over the next two years, the Tyrrell team won nine Grands Prix. David Oliver also details the relative decline of Tyrrell as wins were fewer and farther between over the next decade. Its last Grand Prix win was in 1983 and by 1998 Tyrrell had stopped competing under its own name. However, this book demonstrates that its legacy is still seen in the Mercedes-AMG F1 team today. Including unique contributions from Jackie Stewart and Bob and Kenneth Tyrrell and illustrated with 180 official photographs, this is the definitive concise story of Tyrrell Racing.
