Toleman: F1’s Last Romantics

Cars People


Small, unfashionable, short of money – Toleman racing was the the last of its kind to become a force in Grand Prix racing.

This was the team that took Ayrton Senna into Formula 1 for the first time and for whom he demonstrated his early masterpiece of the art of driving at Monaco in the 1984 season (see tribute video below).

Toleman was also the team that launched the career of Derek Warwick, one of the most popular and accomplished men in British motor sport – as well as bringing Ferrari’s design genius Rory Byrne to sudden prominence.

The new book from Veloce retraces the narrative from the very beginning and covers the dramas, heartbreaks and triumphs of each racing season in detail. It is full of poignant memories never published before, as well as the requisite anecdotes and insights you’d expect from one of the most interesting stories in F1 history.
