Previously unpublished, stunning photographs from motor racing history, in a book that examines the many facets of Grand Prix racing before the dominance of television. A beautiful look at a fascinating time in motor racing. This book is a virtual time machine to the past. It presents stunning previously unpublished photographs from motor racing history, and examines the many facets of Grand Prix racing before the dominance of television and commercial advertising.
Here are stories of derring-do and racing that constantly pushed the boundaries of technology. The story begins in the 1930s when the German Auto-Unions and Mercedes were heavily subsidised by the Nazi regime to strengthen their engineering might. This produced the most powerful racing cars ever (at least until the turbocharged cars of the 1980s), and which was followed by the postwar era that saw the BRM V16 bringing prestige to Great Britain. Altogether a nostalgic look at a fascinating time in motor racing's development.
Features: * Photographs from 1933-1939 * Photographs from 1950-1962 * The Germans and Grand Prix racing before WWII * The story of the BRM V16 1948-1955 * The postwar rear-engined revolution (including 500cc) * The emergence of the Lotus marque * The emergence of Jimmy Clark * Early career of Jimmy Clark at Lotus * Bob Dance his early life pre-1960 * Bob Dance his Lotus years up to 1970, in his own words
