THE TEST
a novel debut from

an old hand

A blast from the past as 1970's motor sport heroes fight for recognition against establishment and gangland bad boys and girls, discovering salvation through a rock music god.

BACK IN BIMMERLAND..

Walton latest hardback big BMW book. Title’s not too snappy — BMW: Ultimate Drives Volume 1 — but cracking pictures and some amazing opportunities to cover 1937-1982 BMW icons compensate.

Ultimate Drives also fulfilled its launch promise with a coveted fifth place in Classic & Sports Cars Favourite Books annual review. Congrats to Coterie Publishing and ultra-enthusiast Julian Balme for a double achievement as their efforts also took fourth in this prestigious listing with the Ian Walker Racing title.

Anyway, the author wrote so much the Volume 1 bit was necessary as there’s post-1980 content to cover after this flight from prewar 328 and coupe/convertible cousins, to the 1980s first M-car, via the hand-built V8 503 and 507 families.
