B13 From The Fells To Ferrari The Official Biography of Cliff Allison
This is a long overdue book about a tough yet unassuming man whose burning ambition was to race in Formula 1. Starting like so many others in the 1950's in a 500cc F3 Cooper, he soon began winning and joined up with Colin Chapman in 1955. He successfully raced Lotus Nine and Eleven sportscars and in 1957 won the coveted Index of Performance at Le Mans in 1957 with Keith Hall.
This was also the year he first drove a Lotus single seater, the Mk 12 F2 car, which in 1958 took Lotus into F1 for the first time. The 12 was a difficult car but although Cliff struggled all season he scored Lotus first World Championship points and his performances led to Ferrari making him an offer for 1959.
He was just beginning to establish himself as a Grand Prix driver when a bad accident at Monaco in 1960 ended his season. Cliff retired the following year after another big crash at Spa in a Lotus 18/21.
It's a fascinating read with many wonderful photographs from Cliff's private collection.
