One of the biggest books to come across our desk recently is this one, IMSA 1969-1989. But it takes a book that big to tell The Inside Story of How John Bishop Built the World’s Greatest Sport Car Racing Series. Authors Mitch Bishop and Mark Raffauf look back at how the International Motor Sports Association came to be. Bishop’s vision of a true world class racing series came to life just when many amateur SCCA racers were looking to turn pro, race tracks were being built all across America, and major companies had advertising dollars to spend. It was a perfect storm that gave birth to sports car racing as we know it today. It’s a colorful and comprehensive Must Read for any racing enthusiast.
