The famous cars made by ERA (English Racing Automobiles) epitomize British motor racing during the 1930s and have a very special place in the affections of patriotic enthusiasts. This magnificent book tells the story of a uniquely historic example that has competed almost without a break for 80 years and achieved innumerable successes.

R4D was campaigned extensively before and after the Second World War by Raymond Mays, the leading light of the ERA company, before passing through a succession of subsequent owners who have kept this famous car at the forefront of competition to the present day. The extraordinary life of R4D, a formidably powerful and charismatic racing car, is told in fascinating detail in this long-awaited book.

Born in Somerset, J. Mac Hulbert is an academic who spent most of his career at Columbia University in Manhattan, where he was the R.C. Kopf Professor of International Marketing. His passion for historic cars has led him to own and compete with a huge variety of machinery, including ERA R4D in the period 2001–15. He has written many books about business, but this long-awaited and thoroughly researched work is his first about cars.
