Finally, after multiple delays (a whole book itself!), we can say that pre-orders are now being taken for Yanks book sets (Vol. I-III), shipping from the printer after the first of year year (2019)! Thanks for your patience, but from the comments and reviews we've seen and will soon publish, well worth the wait.

Due to even more amazing images, many not seen before, and thus more pages, the first publication will now be split into three volumes per boxed set, not two, though the same time span, 1923-1979, will be covered. That's the good news. The bad news is, due to circumstances beyond our control (a delay in the delivery of promised images from one source) unfortunately, Yanks will not be available for delivery before Christmas as originally planned.  But the wait will be worth it, we promise!

Author Tim Considine leaves, Monday, June 12 for Le Mans to officially announce publication of the first two volumes of Twice Around the Clock - The Yanks at Le Mans.  "It's the perfect time," said Considine, "it's the 50th anniversary of what is still unarguably the high point of American international motor racing — the Dan Gurney / AJ Foyt / Ford win in 1967 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.  AJ will be there, as well as the winning Ford Mk. IV."  The product of 26 years of research and interviews, as well as six years of writing, Yanks is a multi-volume personal history told from the point of view of Americans who competed at the world famous French classic, often in their own voices.  

Volumes I and II, to be released this November, span from the first 24-hour race, in 1923, when a Franco-American Model T Ford hotrod took part — and finished! — to 1979, by which time Le Mans had been won eight times by American drivers, and four times by American cars — but only once, 50 years ago in 1967, by American drivers in an American car.  Tim adds, "There are great books about Le Mans, but as I've told the many drivers who've generously shared their stories, 'This is our book, our history, written by and for the Americans who lived it.'  And I'm so grateful — and proud — that one of our great American winners, Dan Gurney, has kindly written the Foreword."
