Climax Racing Engines: The Definitive Development History, by
Des Hammill. In the 50s & 60s Coventry Climax engines powered many
race-winning cars, including some driven by Stirling Moss & Jack Brabham.
To get the true inside story, the author, an engineer, has talked to all
surviving Coventry Climax personnel who were involved with the racing
engines. The author was given full access to all of Walter Hassan's papers,
photographs and engine drawings. After 30 months of original research
and writing, this book describes exactly how these famous engines developed
from industrial fire pumps to the Hillman Imp, from Le Mans winning Lotus
Elites to Formula One winners driven by Stirling Moss and Jack Brabham,
right through to the company’s takeover by Jaguar in 1963.
