McLaren M23, 1973 onwards (all marks), Owners’ Workshop Manual

B1836

This manual is not a practical engineering guide to maintaining a McLaren M23 in competition, but provides an excellent overview of this important and iconic F1 racing car. The book is heavily illustrated, mainly with full colour photographs and benefits from the publishers long and specialist experience of producing workshop manuals.

This is a book that will appeal to all F-1 enthusiasts, drivers, mechanics and aspirants. The text is very good and insightful, but what really marks the book out are the excellent photographs, many rare or used for the first time in a publication. It is also a good introduction to Formula One for the many who follow the race season on television and those developing an interest for the sport of motor racing.

DESCRIPTION: This manual is not a practical engineering guide to maintaining a McLaren M23 in competition, but provides an excellent overview of this important and iconic F1 racing car. The book is heavily illustrated, mainly with full colour photographs and benefits from the publishers long and specialist experience of producing workshop manuals.

The M23 was one of the supreme cars of the 3-litre Grand Prix era. It was raced for six years, producing two World Driver’s titles and winning Mclaren its first Constructor’ Championship.

The M23 story is told as an introduction to the detailed look at the car and its technology

The anatomy of the M23 is covered by nine chapters, starting with the specifications and then looking at each major component of the vehicle.
The driver’s view and the mechanic’s view provide a unique insight and perspective, with contributions from leading drivers of the period and the mechanics involved in supporting the M23 through its prime racing years.

A series of chapters look at the important aspects of operating the M23 today as a restored and historic racing car.

The manual concludes with a series of chapters providing chassis histories, the privateer’s view, epilogue and a set of appendices.

This is a book that will appeal to all F-1 enthusiasts, drivers, mechanics and aspirants. The text is very good and insightful, but what really marks the book out are the excellent photographs, many rare or used for the first time in a publication. It is also a good introduction to Formula One for the many who follow the race season on television and those developing an interest for the sport of motor racing.
