A fascinating and well written book that covers the White, then Silver Race Cars of the Pioneer Period through to their last total reign of supremacy at the highest level in the mid-fifties.

Each and every car featured in this book was ‘State of the Art’ in its time. Through tracing the history of the cars, the book also covers the personalities and drivers associated with the cars at the time and the events they competed and excelled at.

It contains an abundance of period photographs and technical drawings and includes some of the artist, Walter Gotschke’s, beautiful colour illustrations.

Hardback in good condition, some light foxing to page edges only. Dust jacket clean and bright, one or two minor tears and slight losses to top/bottom of spine – now protected in clear cover.
