Here at the Launch of Ian De Cotta's Book

Yesterday saw the launch of one of the greatest book to be written in Singapore Motorsport History - The author : Ian De Cotta - The Title : The Singapore Grand Prix ( 50 years in the making) with a foreword by none other than Sir Stirling Moss...
Mr Robert Wong, former Racer on Thomson Circuit.

Held at one of Singapore's biggest retail center for Audio Products, motorsports fans, young and old got a chance to meet with Mr De Cotta personally and get their copies of the book autographed.
The Book itself is a recollection of a great part of Singapore Motoring History in the 60's and 70's, when drivers and riders would zoom past around the famous Thomson Street Circuit, comprising of the Devil's Bend, the Snakes amongst others.

" Long before Formula 1 Fever swept Singapore's shores, Speed demons reigned at the fabled Upper Thomson Road Circuit.
This is their story "

sums up what the book is really about.

Go and get yourself a copy quick before it runs out, this surely is a must have in your library for everyone remotely or passionately interested in Motorsport Racing History.
