The story of the fabulous racing Fords
By Alan Mann in collaboration with Tony Dron
Alan Mann was one of the great motor racing team managers of the 1960s. A successful race driver himself, he played a key role in Ford’s ‘Total Performance’ programme, preparing and running iconic cars like Ford Falcons, Mustangs, Cobras, GT40s, Cortinas and Escorts for racing and rallying and building the sensational Ford F3L sports-prototype and monster Can-Am racers. His drivers included star names: Frank Gardner, Graham Hill, Denny Hulme, Bruce McLaren, Jackie Stewart and Sir John Whitmore. This is his personal story of one of the most exciting eras of motor sport.
To produce his autobiography, Alan Mann collaborated with author and racing driver Tony Dron. The work was completed late in 2011 and Alan Mann died, after a long illness, early in 2012. Alan Mann Racing lives on, now run by his sons Henry & Thomas. They field cars in historic events, with Henry continuing its success on the race tracks.
