This book is about a special car in motor sport history. It was designed
by Peter Brock, famous for his work on the Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupé
and the Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray. The Lang Cooper was entered in the
American USRRC - United States Road Racing Championship - by no less a
person than Carroll Shelby.
Underneath the modern, slick bodywork
is a British-built Cooper Monaco fitted with a powerful Ford V8 engine.
The car, which took its name from the sponsor Craig Lang, heir to the
Olympia brewery fortune, was driven by Ed Leslie in 1964. It was later
sold to Charlie Hayes in 1965 before being used in club racing and
finally ending up on a scrap yard in South Carolina.
several restorations, the car is now in the N-Anadol Collection in
Switzerland and, since it is in both pristine and race-worthy condition,
is being entered in several historic events by its current owner.
