Q How did you do your research A For starters, I did dozens of interviews Carroll Shelby, Lee Iacocca, Phil Hill, Mario Andretti, A J Foyt, Dan Gurney, John Surtees, Edsel Ford II son of Henry Ford II , Piero Ferrari son of Enzo Ferrari , Lloyd Ruby, plus engineers, mechanics, PR men, executives, and on and on I conducted interviews in Italy, France, England, Los Angeles, and Florida, plus countless others over the phone from my office in New York On top of the interviews, I read everything ever written on the subject, and I saw every bit of footage, which was a particularly good source for dialogue In some cases, I took fast cars onto racetracks, such as Daytona and Ford s Romeo test facility north of Detroit, to try to get further into the heads of the drivers during scenes that take place at these locales. Q Any highlights during your research A My interview with Carroll Shelby Afterward, he drove me from his office in Gardena, California, to the Long Beach airport The guy was getting on in years, and his vision was fading But we were passing car after car on I 405 in a Mustang GT H, which has ridiculous amounts of horsepower We re talking about a guy who won the 24 Hours of Le Mans wearing chicken farmer overalls in 1959 Nearly fifty years later, he can t see much, but he can still drive. Q Why is this topical now A What s happening in the American auto industry today is just stunning My book is in large part about Detroit at the dawn of globalism It s kind of like the first chapter in a long narrative that is now reaching its climax In the 1960s, when the global car sales race began, Detroit was battling against German, British, and Japanese companies for the first time Ford sold cars by proving on the racetrack they were better than anyone else s We won in heroic fashion in the 1960s Were not winning any Photo Timpthy White In the 1950s and 60s, the 24 hours of Le Mans in France were not just a race but, according to Playboy editor Baime, the most magnificent marketing tool the sports car industry had ever known It was also incredibly dangerous, the site of the biggest tragedy in racing historyPierre Levegh s Mercedes Benz 300 SLR slamming into an embankment and leaving at least 75 dead in 1955 Baime s narrative culminates in the 1966 Le Mans racewhere Ford cars placed first, second and thirdand the fierce competition between Ford and Ferrari Ford head Henry Ford II realized that in order to compete in the world market, his cars had to win racesand he could accomplish both by winning at Le Mans Blocking him was the agitator of men, Enzo Ferrari, who devoted his life to building the perfect champion automobile and who prevented Ford from buying Ferrari in 1963 Both men s quest for victory trickles down to their workers Henry II spent millions on technology and manpower to build the perfect car, the GT40, while displaying limited patience after years of failure Meanwhile in Italy, Ferrari s world class drivers faced their own difficulties pleasing their calculating, results driven boss Baime s skillful reporting and introspective writing style make for an insightful portrait of two automobile legends, as well as an exciting account of a bygone era in racing and in American culture 8 page color insert June Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.
