This is the story of Team Shephard and their quest for speed on the dry salt of Lake Gairdner in South Australia. Their desire to push man and machine to the limit.
Their journey began in 2005 when Allen Shephard and Boyd Kolozs saw the Dry Lakes Racing Association's annual Speedweek in action. This planted the seed and Allen decided his 1962 E-Type was perfect for the job.
The idea was simple - see how fast the E-Type could go. Over the next decade they tested themselves and the E-Type in the harsh environment of the Australian outback.
The book tells the story of the pursuit of speed, how they developed the car to go faster and the records they set and broke along the way. It is the story of salt lake racing on the edge.
