Long Beach, CA — Nearly 50 years after it was first published, author Sylvia Wilkinson’s now out-of-print book about racer John Morton’s efforts to build a championship-winning career in the 1970s and 1980s will soon be available as an E-book.
Considered a classic work of nonfiction, The Stainless Steel Carrot will be offered in digital form for the first time by Carrara Media.
Wilkinson’s dogged journalistic chops combine with creative wit and color to offer a complete human portrait of the man who rose to fame driving the iconic Datsun 510 and 240Z race cars to victory for the red, white and blue of Brock Racing Enterprises.
From his early days sweeping the floors for Carroll Shelby and racing alongside Ken Miles, to his SCCA titles and adventures in the Baja 1000, Morton shares insight and advice that will resonate with any motorsports enthusiast.
Pre-order the E-book before its April 5 digital release. Each order also includes a commemorative Stainless Steel Carrot postcard celebrating 50 years of the BRE Datsun 510.
