description

Grand Prix racing in the late 1920s through the early 1930s was 'owned' by the powerful, state-backed Italian teams with drivers like Nuvolari and Varzi, but by the end of the 30s, the Germans dominated. Driving Forces by Peter Stevenson tells the human story of the men, their women, and their machines that made the German dominance possible. It is the classic story of daring individuals facing the ultimate challenge both physically and morally.
