The Green Flag: The Life and Times of Barry Green, Racer


The biography of Barry Green, a highly successful Australian motor racing mechanic and team leader/owner

SKU: THEGREENFLAG Categories: , , ,


Racemaker Press looks forward to launching The Green Flag; Just a Bloke’s Story at Indianapolis in May. Barry Green has written his autobiography in company with renowned racing author Gordon Kirby.

The book covers Barry’s life growing up in Australia and his early racing efforts aboard his own Formula Fords in Australia and Formula 3 cars in Europe. Barry and his wife Jeanne then moved to the United States and he went on to become a very successful Can-Am and Indy car team manager and owner. Over twenty-three years from 1980-2002, Barry’s cars won six Can-Am races and 47 Indy car races, including two and some say three Indy 500s. He worked with some great drivers, including Teo Fabi, Bobby Rahal, Danny Sullivan, Michael Andretti, Al Unser Jr., Jacques Villeneuve, Dario Franchitti and Paul Tracy, as well as brilliant designers like Adrian Newey and Tony Cicale, and a long list of tremendously skilled and motivated mechanics and crewmen.

Barry tells his story with the generous help of these great drivers, engineers and crewmen. The Green Flag will be a typical, high-quality Racemaker Press production with some 190 photographs and a complete list of Barry’s race teams’ statistics.

We plan to launch the book in the third week of May at Michael Lashmett’s Vintage Indy shop in Brownsburg, twenty minutes west of Indianapolis. We invite everyone to come and meet Barry and members of his race team to purchase your signed copy of Racemaker Press’s latest book. We’ll keep you briefed on details of the event over the coming weeks and months. We will also be selling books at our Racemaker Press booth at the Indy Memorabilia Show on May 26th & 27th.
