The centenary history of Lake Perkolilli, Red Dust Racers, by Graeme Cocks was one of the top three specialist motoring books of the year according to the RAC of the UK. At an award ceremony at the Royal Automobile Club at Pall Mall in London on 1 November 2017, the award was presented to a book on Delage racing cars.
It was an exciting night with Damon Hill’s autobiography also receiving Book of the Year.
The top three for Red Dust Racers follows up from being recognised as a finalist in the International Historic Motoring Awards Book of the Year 2017 and receiving the Gold Medal in the Transportation category of the International Independent Publisher’s Awards in New York.
Red Dust Racers is now the most internationally-acclaimed Australian motoring book ever published. Not bad for a book about a dusty claypan near Kalgoorlie!
