I am looking for books published in the 1950s and 1960s that discuss sports car activities in general: how to run a rally, gymkhana, etc. I have never done anything like that and want to learn more about it.

Any recommendations?

Thanks!!

<span style="font-style: italic">Sports Car Rallies, Trials, and Gymkhanas</span>
1956 David Hebb and Arthur Peck

AND the jacket has a drawing of a navigator sitting in a TR3 writing on her clipboard! Wonder where the driver went?

You can borrow mine if you want.

Thanks, JR. I found a copy of the 1956 edition on abebooks and it is on the way. I wonder if the 1960 revised edition is any different?

I found this link when I searched under that title:

Good stuff!! I surfed around his site and there were some neat pictures, too, like the TR2 pace car for the Lawrenceville, Ill, sport car races.

Actually, mine's the 1960 edition. We can compare them.
