Crank handle Club historian Derek Stuart-Findlay has just launched a book on the pioneering years of South African motoring from 1897 up to the 1942 Abyssinian Campaign. Titled Our Intrepid Cape Motoring Pioneers, this 183-page A4-sized hard cover contains 70 stories divided into 10 chapters on the first vehicles to arrive in the country, the veteran and Edwardian eras, WW1, the 1920s, founders of the automotive industry, motoring entrepreneurs, sporting and record breaking achievements as well as road networks, cableways, trams and aircraft. Amply illustrated with over 350 images, while this valuable reference book focuses on activity in the Cape, it is an entertaining and recommended read for anyone interested in pre-war motoring.
