Brabham Ralt Honda: The Ron Tauranac Story

by Mike Lawrence
 

Ron Tauranac – British born, but brought up in Australia – always preferred to let his cars sing his praises where it really mattered – on the race tracks of the world. They have never been known as Tauranacs, but the names Brabham and Ralt will be very familiar to anyone who has followed motor racing since the sixties. And so, of course, is Honda, the company which supplied the engines for some of Tauranac’s most successful Brabham and Ralt racing cars and with which he still retains close links as a design consultant, working behind the scenes on several of their motor racing activities.

The author Dr. Mike Lawrence taught English in schools until he reached forty when he became a freelance writer. He has since written more than forty books on cars and motor racing. For amusement, he undertook a PhD in Shakespeare at the University of Sussex because he was appalled at the low standard of literary scholarship compared with the best that motor racing writers can provide. Mike has also won prestigious awards for writing plays and poetry.
