Description

A single, totally unique 'Race Against Dementia Edition' of the recently published two-volume book set compiled with design genius Gordon Murray: One Formula – 50 years of car design, written by multiple award-winning author Philip Porter.

Race Against Dementia is a global charity founded by Sir Jackie Stewart to fund pioneering research into the prevention and cure of dementia. The charity's vision is to act as a catalyst to cause a breakthrough in the prevention or treatment of dementia with the greatest urgency.

Hand-bound and housed in a capped Gordon Murray-orange slipcase, together with a portfolio of blueprints, a DVD BBC programme about Gordon's career, a model of his first car made especially for Gordon Murray Design and an exclusive portfolio, all contained in a hand-crafted solander box. The portfolio contains a unique signed sketch by Gordon, plus a signed photo unique to each copy, a selection of period passes and other period ephemera. The superb box is topped with a sheet of recycled carbon fibre – a material that has been largely pioneered by Gordon Murray. In addition, the RAD Edition includes a page written by Sir Jackie Stewart about Gordon, and a page written by Gordon about Sir Jackie, bound into Volume 1 and signed by both the racing legends.
