There's no other motor racing circuit in Australia that holds the same magic as Bathurst's Mount Panorama. It's been home to the Australian F1 Grand Prix, The Australian Motorcyle Grand Prix, the world's greatest 1000km touring car race, the Australian Hill Climb championship and now a round of the world GT championship. To win on the Mountain is still the pinnacle of Australian motor sport achievement.John Smailes, co-writer of Allan Moffat's autobiography, and author of Race Across the World, has been at the Mountain for some of its greatest and infamous moments. His book tells the stories behind the champions and legendary races that have made Mount Panorama so famous. With extraordinary access to all of Australia's leading motor racing names, both past and present, John's book is full of colour, anecdote and true inside knowledge.
