‘Racing The Lion’ is a 400 page, hardcover collector’s book authored by Aaron Noonan and Will Dale and published by V8 Sleuth’s parent company AN1 Media.

The book has been published to celebrate Holden’s amazing history in the sport, significant given General Motors’ decision, announced earlier in the year, to retire the brand by 2021.

It features a wide range of archive photos covering Holden’s long racing history with many previously unpublished images included. This makes for a significant illustrated history of Holden in motorsport that will be a prized publication in the bookshelves of many Holden fans.

In fact, there’s nearly 900 photos in this book and 80,000 words of beautifully crafted content, including comprehensive captions to explain the significance and background of the contents of each image.

All of the fan favourite models are covered, including Monaros, Toranas and Commodores. But there’s also a range of other types of racing Holdens including Astras, Vectras, Utes and much, much more.

Every Holden Bathurst winner and Australian Touring Car/Supercars Champion has a dedicated page and imagery, including some of the most famous Holden race cars and drivers in history.

The impressive new book also celebrates a range of motorsport activities undertaken by Holden, including rallying and trials, rallycross, production cars and much, much more.

This book is a must-have for the collection of any Holden or general motorsport enthusiast and is available now to order here from the V8 Sleuth Online Bookshop.

It’s the perfect Christmas present, so order now before stock runs out.
