Chicagoland MG Club: Library
Go Like Hell
Ford, Ferrari, and their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans
by A.J. Baime

2009, 256 pages, some b&w photos, paperback

We all know the story, Ford vs. Ferrari, the Duece vs. Il. Commendatore, Shelby’s hot-rodders vs. Ford’s engineers. But this book reads more like a novel than a history book. It contains a lot of background on the main players without being boring. You might know how it ends, but you won’t know the stories behind the story until you read this book. Good MG connection not only with Carroll Shelby (‘next year Ferrari’s ass is mine’) but also with Ken Miles. Highly recommended.
