At last, a book which traces the development of the thoroughbred racing engine from the beginnings of the art to our own time. It is an engineer’s delight but is written for the layman thoroughly to understand and enjoy. Strong emphasis upon the human roles of the personalities involved renders the text vibrantly alive.
In this one substantial volume are gathered detailed accounts of how all of the great marques and the important lesser ones worked with this most efficient and exciting form of power plant up to 1940. Post-war development of the breed is summarised in a richly illustrative final chapter.
