I have added another rallying book to my library. This time I bought a book written William Leonard about the Dutch rally/racer driver Maurice Gatsonides. Maurice Gatsonides, or “Gatso” as he was often known, was probably the first professional rally driver. Gatsonides began his rally career by entering the 1936 Monte Carlo Rally. Over the years, he competed in the Monte Carlo Rally, the Alpine Rally, and the Leige-Rome-Leige Rally, among many other rallies. Gatsonides also took part in many car races such as Le Mans.
Maurice Gatsonides Was The First Professional Rally Driver
The book was published in December 1950, so that it only covers the first part of his career. He continued to take part in major rallies until the mid-1960s.

This is a good addition to my library and I look forward to reading this book about a great rally driver taking part in the major car rallies during the period from 1936 to 1950.
