JENKINSON, Denis Sargent.
Jenks: A Passion for Motor Sport.
Foreword by Stirling Moss.
First edition, this a copy of the special BRDC edition, signed on the front free endpaper by the president, Lord Hesketh. Selection from Jenks’s more than 40 years of contributions to Motor Sport. “His own competition exploits – on both two and four wheels – were mainly confined to minor events, but he had also taken part in motor sport at the highest level, first as athletic passenger to Sidecar World Champion Eric Oliver, and later as the famed navigator who pointed Stirling Moss to perhaps the greatest of all his motor racing triumphs – the record-shattering victory in the 1955 Mille Miglie round-Italy sports car race” (jacket blurb).
