There are some audio clips on the ‘News’ page and they really are superb listening. Interesting to hear the race commentary in RP. Nostalgic! If you listen and close your eyes you could really imagine being there!
The book appears to be similar to Palawan quality/level and priced accordingly. Certainly worth a look for anyone with an interest in Bristol Cars and/or Tony Crook!
Yes, Geoff, it is well worth having – I too have ordered a copy and the audio clips on the website are excellent and well worth a listen! In fact I think the website ought to be brought to a wider Bristol audience. I wonder if you might like to post something positive about it on the ‘other’ Bristol forum?
Well what to say, it arrived around tea time Wednesday I finally put it down around 9.30 in the evening having read several chapters, browsed all the photographs and started on some of the appendices knowing that many more hours of pleasure await going over all this again at a more leisurely pace.
Unfortunately Thursday mornings plans were also put to one side as the previous evening I had a quick look at Dreamers and could not wait to read more, what a marvellous pair of books, the main volume is a fascinating book covering what to me has always been one of the most important aspects of Bristol’s history, without Tony Crook it would have all ended I suspect many years ago and at last I feel he is being given the full credit he deserves. Dreamers as a companion volume is a gem and helps to set the record straight.
Going back to the main book however for me at least a remarkable part about Tony Crooks life that perhaps I had not appreciated before was his record as a racing driver, yes one picked up snippets about in period magazines, chapters in other books but here it is laid out in detail with loads of wonderful photographs.
