“When George Levy inquired about the possibility of writing my biography,” says Jim Hall, “I had no idea of the time and effort that he would be willing to expend to accomplish it. I’m amazed at how many people he has interviewed, and how hard he has researched to obtain documentation and photographs to verify the accuracy of what he has written. I admire George, and thank him for his fortitude and sincere determination to get it right.”

Those words from one of the great innovators of motor racing explain why his official biography, Texas Legend: Jim Hall and his Chaparrals, has taken three years longer than expected to reach fruition.

Now, however, we can confirm that this book will be published in June 2024. To find out more about it, check out the book details, where you can see page spreads from the book and a selection of photos, and read an extract.

Those interviews undertaken by George number more than 100. First and foremost as contributors are Jim and his wife Sandy, who have also provided many photographs from their own collection. Other key interviewees include Roger Penske, Mario Andretti, Jackie Stewart, Brian Redman and Johnny Rutherford. There are also insights from important figures who are no longer with us, such as Dan Gurney, Phil Hill, John Surtees and Al Unser.

All in all, this is a new biography of great quality and significance. We at Evro are proud to be its publisher.
