Iconic Racer Series Multimedia Books
The new Iconic Racer Series multimedia books from Dm2 are set to revolutionise motorsport information for the fans. The Apple book format for iPad (all versions) – and now OSX-based Macs with iBooks – will provide the user with the full multimedia experience – text, graphics, sound and video.
You can read, view Hi-Res photographs and play video, all at a touch or swipe. Review the cars history and development, and then inspect the car in detail using our interactive touch controls. Look at the teams and drivers, the races they ran in, the tracks and check the results gained, using official documentation. A fully comprehensive and detailed work, the Iconic Racer Series multimedia experience takes you on a learning journey into the world of motorsport.
The first Iconic Racer Series iBook, entitled “McLaren MP4-12C GT3 – Birth of a Legend”, deals with these exotic cars through concept, development and all aspects of the McLaren GT3 racing history up to the end of the 2012 season.
The second Iconic Racer Series iBook, entitled “Porsche 911 RSR (Type 991) 50 Years of Refinement”, will be available before the end of May 2014. It documents the 911 RSR from concept, development and details of its racing history up to the end of the 2014 season.
The books are available for purchase at just £5.49, €6,99 and US$7.99 with free updates. Unlike final print media, the Iconic Racer Series book will continue to be updated as appropriate information is found on a quarterly basis* (free to purchasers) and may be downloaded from the Apple iBookstore.

‘Birth of a Legend’ was endorsed by Apple from over 2m books in the iBookstore by being selected as Editors Choice, What’s Hot and BuzzBooks in a significant number of their 51 global stores.
Our McLaren GT3 reviews in the commercial press and media were also very encouraging with a 4-star review from AutoExpress, whilst MotorSport went on to say that ” . . . if you want the MP4-12C GT3’s history at your fingertips, this will serve as a useful companion on your digital bookshelf.
We believe our new book documenting the Porsche 911 RSR has greater appeal as Porsche AG are universally recognised as the largest sports car manufacturer in the world. The 911 RSR impressed the global GT racing community by scoring as 1-2 class victory at the iconic 24 Heures du Mans in 2013 – first time out. This year, with expanded racing activities, the revised 2014 car has already won both the Daytona 24 Hours and the 12 Hours of Sebring in the North American Tudor (TUSC) series and is fighting for podium places in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) again.
Dm2 are already working on a number of projects in 2014 and are in discussions to add more, very special and very exciting racing cars to the Iconic Racer Series during the year. Watch this space!
