Rudolf Caracciola, was high among the best known names in motor racing through the 1920s-30s, beginning his career with Mercedes in 1923 and ending with the same team in 1939.

However, he did spend the 1932 season with Alfa-Romeo, but returned to Mercedes in 1934. His first GP victories came in 1926, the last in 1939. He also competed in many TT and Rally events.

His autobiography is a revealing one about the pressures, stresses, success and disappointments that are the lot of every motor racing driver, but his are recorded with refreshing candour.

The book was initially published in German, followed soon after by this first English translation, by Charles Meisl.

Hardback in generally good condition, slight spotting in places, black boards good. Dust jacket also clean and bright some scuffs and minor tears to corners. Nice example.
