This book details the origin and history of the Mirage sports cars, designed by the British-based John Wyer Automotive firm to contest the various versions of the World Sports Car Championship between 1967 and 1975, and funded by the Gulf Oil Corporation.
The cars began as developments of the Ford GT40, but they soon assumed their own identity. After 1975, the Mirage was no longer in John Wyer hands, but the name lived on, and it remained a significant player in the World Championship for some years. Includes the developmental and race history, with a full list of all events and individual chassis numbers.
The early years: 1967 GULF M1 - 1969 GULF M2 and M3
Running with the best: 1972/1973/1974 GULF M6 and GR7 - 1975 GR8
The post JW-Gulf years: 1976/1977/1978 GR8-M9 - 1979 M10 - 1982 M12
