Recently, John Starkey
, finished his last book. From R to GT2. The Racing Porsches 911 & 930
To use his own words, John Starkey is a self-confessed Sports/GT racing freak who got so far into his hobby that he turned it into a business.
From the early begin, Porsche used Motorsport as a marketing tool. And lots of successes in motorsport were
gained by Porsches 911 and derivatives. This book is dedicated to the last 40 years of the Porsche 911 and 930 in racing.
Almost 900 pages, 20 chapters , covering the race history of these cars, from the Porsche 911 S to the turbocharged GT2's.

The book can be ordered by the author John Starkey and costs
$99.99 + shipping and handling. It's really worth every cent !!
