Champion Racing: A Little Bit of Magic

by David Tremayne

Forewords by Wolfgang Durheimer 

& Norbert Singer

When Florida Porsche dealer Dave Maraj launched his Champion Racing team in 1993, few observers would have guessed it would eventually become a top competitor in the American Le Mans Series, the Speedvision World Challenge, and even the world's most prestigious endurance event, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. 

In 'Champion Racing: A Little Bit of Magic', author David Tremayne tells the full story of the team's rise, and explains how Maraj's commitment to hard work, intense preparation, and empowering the right people led to the team's success.

Produced with support from Champion Porsche, 'A Little Bit of Magic' is a fitting tribute to the legacy of a great American racing team. Nearly 500 pages long, the extra-large, fully illustrated book not only tells the Champion story from beginning to end, but also includes forewords by former Volkswagen Group executive Wolfgang D�rheimer and legendary Porsche racing engineer Norbert Singer. There are also personal remembrances and testimonials from drivers Bill Adam, James Weaver, and Lucas Luhr, team owner Roger Penske, and ALMS director Scott Atherton, along with many other friends, teammates, and competitors. Finally, a complete Race Results appendix documents all of the team's appearances from 1993 through 2008. Restock shipment due later this week. 

Hardbound | 472 pages | 403 color and black-and-white photographs
