From 1955 to 1980, the British Motor Corporation — later British Leyland — committed itself to motorsports, mainly rallying, as a means of product improvement and publicity. This fascinating story of those years is written by Bill Price, who was involved with BMC’s various departments for more than two decades. Included are profiles of the managers, drivers, and mechanics; the stories behind marques like Austin, Austin-Healey, Morris, and Triumph; and the races, the victories, the disappointments, and the boardroom politics. Nearly 600 evocative photographs show the cars in action, and appendices provide event results for BMC/BL cars entered and supported in the events for a quarter of a century. pp. 392 illusts #0120
