"Here is the first full history of the fabled old Grand Touring Prototypes, the signature cars of the bygone International Motor Sports Association. Sleek coupes stuffed with exotic technology, IMSA GTPs reigned as North America's premier road racers from 1981 through 1993, when the series abruptly died.
This is a big book, but its subject is even bigger. With "only" 512 pages — 186 of them devoted to the official results of every race — it can be no more than an overview of those eventful 13 seasons. Given limited space, J.A. Martin chose to focus on the human element in a team-by-team format. Completing a project begun by the late Ken Wells, he drew from interviews with more than 130 drivers, designers, mechanics, managers and officials, who are often refreshingly candid, even caustic, when explaining why certain things happened, or didn't."
