Motor racing has always had the capacity to create memorable stories and images. From the earliest days, car manufacturers used motor sport as a proving ground for their machines, but the sport earned an image far beyond that of a mere engineering laboratory.

As motor sport developed from the inter-city road races to closed road circuits and eventually to purpose-built tracks, it became one of the most sensational sports in the world.

This is the story of motor racing from the first days to the Fifties the story of Jenatzy, Boillot, Campbell, Caracciola, Fangio and Moss and of their cars: the Alfas, Mercedes, Maseratis and Ferraris.

Hardback with colour self cover – almost as new.
