New Cunningham Book

Cunningham book

Having been granted unprecedented access to hitherto unpublished archive material by the Cunningham family and the families of the team members, author Richard Harman has been able to trace the history of most of the Cunningham-owned cars in great detail.

Briggs Cunningham was a competitor, patron and pioneering champion of road racing in the USA. In addition to the cars which bore his name with pride and competed against the best in the world, the Cunningham team raced many other models in the 1950s and 1960s in both the USA and Europe.

Further, during his long life, Briggs owned a large variety of vehicles ranging from the mundane to the spectacular. When his racing days came to an end, he assembled his collection together to establish what was to become one of the best car museums in the world in Costa Mesa, California.

Dan Gurney Receives
Lifetime Award

Dan Gurney

The Henry Ford Museum awarded Dan Gurney the “Edison-Ford Medal for ingenuity and a lifetime of innovative and entrepreneurial spirit”.

While being interviewed by Charlie Rose (CBS), Gurney was asked how, after nine previous attempts, he finally was victorious at LeMans.

Dan said that even though he was a faster one-lap driver than Briggs Cunningham, that Briggs had always finished higher at LeMans than he did.

“Briggs realized that LeMans was not a race, but an endurance contest,” he said. “Once I adopted Briggs’ strategy of driving the race car tenderly, I finally put myself in a position to win.”
