Description

In October 1919 W. O. Bentley and F.T. Burgess tested their new 3-litre engine. This reliable unit was the basis for the car which W. O. had always wanted to build: a fast tourer that could cover long distances with the minimum of maintenance.

More than 3,000 Bentleys were produced over the next 12 years; and from a first victory in a Brooklands junior sprint handicap extends an endurance racing history which will never be rivalled.

This book is the most complete analysis ever published of the incomparable Cricklewood era. Outstanding book, with great critical acclaim.

Hardback in as new condition.
