Riassunto: In the 1960s and 1970s Mark Donohue redefined what it meant to be a successful driver. To millions of fans he was Captain Nice, the photogenic all-American boy who made winning look easy in sports-cars, the popular new Trans-Am and Can-Am series, and even the Indianapolis 500.
Mark Donohue: His Life in Photographs recaptures Donohue's brillant career through revealing photographs from his childhood, his early amateur-racing days, and his brief, brillant career as a professional. Many of these pictures were provided by the people who were closest to Donohue: his family, friends, and Penske Racing teammates. The book also offers some of the best work by the top motorsports photographers of the era, who deliver brillant images of Donohue with a dazzling array of race cars, and intimate shots with his team and fellow drivers.
Each photograph is accompanied by detailed insightful captions and text by Michael Argetsinger, author of the definitive biography, Mark Donohue: Technical Excellence at Speed. Mark's Penske Racing teammates, friends, family, and fellow drivers also offer their recollections and commentary.
L'autore: As a member of an American racing family, Michael Argetsinger remembers the earliest days of post-war road racing. Growing up in the race organization at Watkins Glen, he graduated from mowing grass at the circuit to become assistant to the press director at the United States Grand Prix, and later, representative in Europe to the race director. His experience also includes working with the Cooper Car Company during the 1966 Formula One Grand Prix season. After two years of service in the U.S. Army, he began his own racing career in 1965 while still in college. He raced in Europe for 10 years and remains an active driver in the SCCA and in vintage racing. He is married and lives in Chicago, Illinois. His critically acclaimed first book, Walt Hansgen: His Life and the History of Post-War American Road Racing, published by David Bull Publishing, received a Gold Medal for biography and was named Best of Books for 2006 at the International Automotive Media Awards. His 2009 biography, Mark Donohue: Technical Excellence at Speed, also published by Bull, was a finalist in The Dean Batchelor Awards, and it won a gold medal, was named Best of Books, and went on to sweep all other entries to win Best of 2009 in the International Automotive Media Awards.
