Limited to 1,000 copies, each individually numbered and signed by Doug Nye. A Collector’s Edition of this title is also available.
First published in 1975, this current edition has been vastly enhanced, expanded and updated in a new appreciably larger-format thanks to considerable input from motor racing historian Doug Nye.
This book is the fully documented story of how Tony Vandervell took his British Vanwalls to the pinnacle of motor racing, and in doing so, set the foundation for decades of British-led success in Formula One.
With a superb collection of unique period photographs, documents and detailed captions written by Doug Nye, the result is the definitive history of this ground-breaking British Formula One team.
Published by Porter Press International, it is considered the best and most up-to-date, authoritative book on the origin and incredible rise to success of Vanwall.

With a 18ct Gold nib, every pen is supplied with a Certificate bearing the edition number of the pen, presented in a large luxury green leather-style box which includes a booklet on the fascinating history of Vanwall, a pen polishing cloth, user manual and bottle of British Made green ink to rev up your Vanwall!
The Conway Stewart Vanwall Pen has been engineered to the highest standards to celebrate the success of the Vanwall British Grand Prix Formula 1 racing team of 1958. Made from a beautiful marbled green acrylic resin which changes colour as the pen is turned in the light.
Vanwall’s unique logo, a registered trademark in the EU and UK, is engraved on the barrel along with “Made in Great Britain” to reflect the origin of the pen and the Vanwall Formula One racing cars.
It is complemented with 9ct gold fittings – a narrow ring on the barrel end, and a wider cap band with the Limited Edition Number of the pen laser engraved into the gold. The gold cap band is stamped with English Hallmarks indicating quality and purity.
If you love iconic motor racing liveries, classic surfboards and time-honoured British craftsmanship, you will love the Vanwall Surfing Slicks.
Each surfboard is an original design, handmade in the UK. The size and style of the board reflects the 1950s era of the championship Vanwall race car.
With highly finished gloss paintwork, the numbers on the boards reflect the number of each Vanwall race car and driver’s name during the team’s championship races in 1958 Formula One season.
Make a bold statement. Whether casually leant against a wall or expertly mounted on it, a Vanwall Surfing Slick is a striking addition to a room, office or showroom.
Surfing Slicks are pieces of collectable art in their own right.
Two exclusive limited edition full colour prints of photographs of the original Vanwall VW5/11, which is part of the Miles Collier Collection at the Revs Institute, Naples, Florida, USA.
With chassis by Colin Chapman, bodywork and styling by Frank Costin, the historically significant Vanwall is one of the most instantly recognisable and iconic Grand Prix cars of Formula One.
