THE limited print run for the new V8 Sleuth-published book documenting the histories of all of Perkins Engineering’s Commodore race cars has been confirmed.

The collector’s edition book will be strictly limited to a print run of 2500 copies and is available to pre-order online here now.

More than half of the 2500 copies have already been snapped up by pre order customers.

“Our chassis history books have proven to sell out rather quickly and that was certainly the case with our last two books focused on the cars of Dick Johnson Racing and the Holden Racing Team,” says publisher Aaron Noonan.

“The print run of 2500 books make this particular publication a sought-after collectable, so we recommend fans and readers pre order to ensure they avoid disappointment and don’t miss out.”

Each book will be individually numbered of 2500 and all will be hand-signed by six-time Bathurst winner Larry Perkins.

The book’s presenting partner is the National Motor Racing Museum at Mount Panorama – a limited number of copies of the book will be available to purchase from the Museum once it’s released later in the year.

The book will be officially launched at the National Motor Racing Museum during race week of this year’s Repco Bathurst 1000 in October.
