This 48 page 6-inch by 8-inch softbound booklet published by Castrol Limited, Castrol House, Marylebone Road, London N.W.1 has very nice color pictures of Lotus Cortinas all over the cover, back cover and inside front cover, as well as lots of black and white photographs throughout. The Scottish and Irish Rally pictures, the Tulip Rally for Group 1 and Group 2, and lots of extra Lotus Cortina images from a collection of European rallies are rounded out with a small photograph of a Lotus Cortina "...out-drags the rest of a front row..." (a Mini and a Shelby Mustang!) at Warwick Farm, Australia. Also inside, is an interesting 2 page interview given by Rauno Aaltonen on "Left Foot Braking- NOT for Beginners". And my personal favorite- a 2 page set of diagrams on "Formation Flying with the Red Arrows". Now the next time I find myself in a Hawker Siddeley Gnat at 450 m.p.h. alongside a few other mates, I will know what to do!

Original copies are rare. The page paper is not high quality, and turns brown and brittle with age. Booklets are only available from collectors.
