Royal Automobile Announces Shortlist of Contenders

Shortlist of Contenders for RAC Motoring Book of the Year

The most spectacular sports cars – and two of Britain’s racing driver heroes – stand out among the subject matter for the Royal Automobile Club’s 2015 Motoring Book of the Year Award, which will be announced on Wednesday, 28 October. Nominations for the Award have now all been received from the six independent judges, who review car-related books professionally for the most respected motoring publications in the country. Major new works on the Porsche 917, the Jaguar Lightweight E-type 4WPD and Alfa Romeo’s Grand Prix cars are in contention amongst superb autobiographies of Sir Stirling Moss OBE, and the late Jim Clark – in what’s turned out to be a truly vintage year for new titles.
