Bleu Matra, la couleur de la victoire

Matra, synonyme du renouveau français, avec ses victoires en championnat du monde en Formule 1 en 1969 et aux 24 Heures du Mans de 1972 à 1974, électrise encore avec un passé bien présent que vous découvrirez dans cette édition dédiée aux mordus du fameux "son V12".

Photographes amateurs dès leur adolescence, Yves Ronga et Luc Joly ont fréquenté les circuits avec leurs appareils photo à partir de 1969. En partageant leurs clichés dans cet ouvrage, ils font revivre avec nostalgie l'épopée de la marque bleue française en mêlant des photos d'hier et d'aujourd'hui avec les témoignages de ceux qui ont fait la légende Matra : pilotes, ingénieurs et mécaniciens.

Matra Sports Cars - MS 620, 630, 650, 660 & 670 - 1966 to 1974 (WSC Giants)

This pioneering book focuses on the pivotal era of late 1960s and early 1970s international sports car racing, highlighting the intense competition between Porsche, Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, and Matra.
In 1973, the Matra prototype, resembling a Grand Prix car with full bodywork, asserted dominance in the racing scene. This book captures the essence of this golden era when Grand Prix drivers actively participated in both sports car and F1 machines.

Dedicated to the Matra 3 prototypes of 1966-1974, the book provides a comprehensive history and development overview. It meticulously details the competition history of each chassis, accompanied by rare and unseen photographs. A season-by-season account of Matras in the World Championship, a complete list of races with individual chassis numbers, and brief profiles of works Matra drivers from 1966-74 enhance the reader's understanding of this remarkable period in motorsport.
