“… Worth the wait. … the quantity of previously unknown information is astonishing. … (reveals) an undeservedly overlooked aspect of motoring history in the second half of the 20th century. A revelation.” Sébastien Faures, The Automobile Magazine

“… stuffed with images that complement a thorough but always readable text … one surprise after another. An outstanding work” Matt Dixon, deputy editor, Octane magazine

“… this informative book outlines the firm’s sea of clever engineering. There’s much racing too.” Gordon Cruickshank, Motor Sport magazine

“… well laid out, easy to read and superbly illustrated … an important slice of engineering history has been preserved for future generations” Mike Jiggle, Auto Tradition magazine

Ferguson Formula Four-wheel Drive Day

To launch  the book, I arranged a Ferguson Formula Four-Wheel Drive Day  at the British Motor Museum, Gaydon, Warwickshire on May 12 2019.  This event will run alongside the second day of the Gaydon Land Rover Show
 I invited everyone I have met or who I know who owns a vehicle equipped with Ferguson Formula 4WD, as well as many former employees and executives of both Harry Ferguson Research and FF Developments. 
It was, according to everyone who. attended, a huge success and it is my aim to hold a second Ferguson 4WD day in 2020, so if you own a vehicle with Ferguson 4WD, please contact me via the contact page
To see what vehicles are eligible, please go the the Ferguson Formula Vehicles page
