In 1938 Morgan appeared on the world stage, competing at the famous 24 hour race at Le Mans against the best sports cars of the day driven by the best international drivers. Two enthusiastic amateurs, Prudence Fawcett, a pretty young society lady and Geoff White from the Winter Garden Garages brought the Morgan home to 13th place having covered over 1,350 miles.
Now the story is being told in full together with Morgan's foray into other international pre war races, remarkably all in the same Morgan 4-4. This book tells the story of Morgan's adventures in the RAC Tourist Trophy races in 1937 and 1938 and at Le Mans in 1938 and 1939, together with extensive biographies of the Morgan competitors.
Numerous rare photographs have been used to illustrate the races drawn from private collections of the personalities who were actually there.
This is the first book to cover in detail Morgan's triumphant entry into the world of international motor racing during the golden years of the inter war period in a legendary Morgan 4-4 sports car.
