Kings of the Mountain is a richly photographed compendium of untold stories from the incredible history of Australian motorsport's biggest race. Renowned racing journalist Gordon Lomas, author of Bathurst, interviews over 20 winners of Bathurst, from Bob Holden and Jim Richards to Mark Winterbottom and Chaz Mostert, as well as Phil Brock's recollections of his brother Peter and a host of other racing icons. Fiery rivalries, controversies, the heartache of defeat and the rapture of victory - all reveal just what it takes to compete on Australia's most famous track.
