In 1987, John Lund’s eleven year struggle behind the wheel finally came good – he won the stock car World Final. Little did he realise that over twenty years later he would still be part of the sport, having won the World Final more times than any other.
GOLD TOP tells the story behind John Lund’s stock car career. Based on interviews with John and his family, it draws the rich anecdotes from a quiet and modest champion to conjure a colourful and compelling biography.
From triumph to tragedy, this is the long journey that made John Lund one of the most experienced, popular and successful drivers in the history of motorsport.
Scott Reeves is a freelance writer and publisher who has been a keen stock car fan since his first trip to Odsal Stadium in 1987. This is his first book.
A proportion of the price of this book will be donated to the British Stock Car Drivers Association Benevolent Fund.
“Everyone who is a fan knows the John Lund story, right? Think again – Scott Reeves has written a book remarkable for its attention to detail on one of stock car racing’s all-time greats.” Neil Randon, author of The Sound and the Fury
