Recognition for Deane Book

Good news!  Our book, “Claude Deane. Western Australia’s Motor Dealer Extraordinaire” has received two commendations in one week — short-listed for the Royal Automobile Club of the UK’s Motoring Book of the Year Awards and receiving a special commendation at the Royal WA Historical Society’s AE Williams/Lee Steere 2020 Publications Prize.  It’s great to see a West Australian motoring history book receive such recognition.


Only 100 copies left in stock. This epic work on Western Australia's motoring history took 20 years to write and is packed with photographs that capture the 100 years of racing on the claypan at Lake Perkolilli.
