Graham Robson possesses a world-wide reputation as a motoring historian, and has been close to the sport of rallying for many years. Not only as a competitor, team manager, organiser, reporter, commentator and observer, but above all as an enthusiastic historian, in more than forty years he has never lost touch with the sport. His experience of rallying is worldwide. Not only has he competed in many British and European events, but reported on marathons in South America, and acted as a travelling controller in the legendary London-Mexico World Cup rally. As a recognised authority on many aspects of classic cars and motoring of that period, he is the most prolific of all authors, with more than 120 published books to his credit. Over the years he has owned, driven, described and competed in many of the cars featured in this Landmark Rally Cars series, and his insight into their merits is unmatched.
"Even if you're not into the Celica GT Four, it's a good book. If
you're into 1990s rallying, you should buy it. Robson does a good
job at making what could be a heavy going subject easy to read and
understand." - ToyotaTuner.com---
"Thanks to writer Graham Robson's usual encyclopaedic collection of facts and photos and easy style of expressing himself I feel I know all about this pretty Japanese coupe ... This is definitely another volume for the bookshelf." - Motor Cycling Club
