I can really recommend these Spurring books.I think they are the best motor racing history books published ever.With the change of publishers I doubt the 4 volumes already published will stay available for long.

I echo the recommendation. I have the first four volumes, which are nicely produced and, as far as I can ascertain, a very accurate history of the greatest race in the world. I'm eagerly awaiting my pre-ordered copy of 1990 to 1999.

Interestingly, my order with W H Smith for the 1990/1999 edition has been cancelled by them - "unavailability of stock"!. I've now ordered from Amazon so we shall see - they have given me a date of 12/15th July.

Thanks to Amazon (you may not approve of their tax arrangements but they are very efficient) my copy of 1990 - 1999 has arrived this morning. Well up to the quality of the previous editions and I would continue with my recommendation that, to those without the space or budget for the 'year books', these books by Quentin Spurring are the next best available record for anybody for whom the 24 hours of Le Mans is the greatest race in the world.

Had exactly the same thing...

Went straight back on to to their site and it was there in stock albeit for a slightly higher price of 32.50. Delivered it already.

In 2015 I decided to collect the yearbooks (english) from the years I visited. Only exception I wanted are '94 '95 '96 because the Honda NSX participated. Last year the collection was complete except for the '94 english version. Hadn't seen one single one for sale. It was only until tonight I found out it is only in French. It is so great to have this forum thanks Tenhts, now all I have to do is find myself a descent priced '94 french version. Wish I would have bought the one I found at the track last year for only 50 what a bargain that was.
