Just been talking to Angela Cherrett (vintage Alfa section) and she mentions the coming Geoff Goldberg book about Virgilio. Having seen a proof copy she waxes eloquent, as they say.  She was told publication in the spring.

Does anyone know any more, especially where those of us in Europe will be able to purchase as the publisher seems to be American.  Chaters?  Amazon?  Through the Club?

Geoff is a member of the LMC and posts on here under "GG". I'm sure if you PM him he'll let you know.

It'll certainly be worth the wait!

Geoff has contacted me and has requested that for the time being interested parties are directed to either his website where there is a brief description of the book under "publications" or to David Bull.

There are also some other very interesting publications already available:

Acting on your second reply I have emailed the publishers.  Partly as I have no idea what to PM someone means!  Sounds rather nasty.

I will post again as and when I have a reply.  I have particularly asked for a better idea of publication date and where one can order within Europe.

PM means sending someone a Private Message so you can communicate off the forum. If you click on a members name it'll bring up their details and you can find the link to send them your question.

Just received this reply from the publisher.  Any more news I will post.  I will ask who their UK distributor is.

Hi Mic.

We will add you to our contact list so we can let you know when the book becomes available. Sales throughout Europe will be handled through our UK distributor so you should be able to purchase a copy through the UK rather than the US.

Best regards,

And here is the latest news from the publisher.

"Our distributor sells to Chaters so you should have no problem."

Thanks for the interest. The book is in very very last stages of proofing, so its done and ready. Probably 3-4 months out until available. No promises, but its been a long haul. I hope you will find it interesting. Some of the material was presented at the Sliding Pillar rally in Belgium last year, so you might ask  someone who was there about it.

Its got a lot of unpublished material, and rather the inside story. We might be able (if there is enough club interest) to do a package deal with someone for better pricing.

Having been fortunate enough to see some of the content of this book, its a must for me. Please add me to the list (if there is one) for a package deal.
