The Vanwall was one of the Great Green hopes of British motor sport in the 1950s.

The brainchild of the industrialist Guy Anthony Vanderwell, the Vanwall Grand Prix car was built to beat the all-conquering red cars from Italy that dominated the Grand Prix scene at that time.

Here, Ed McDonough re-presents the history of Vanwall, from the team’s slow beginnings after Vanderwell’s break away from BRM to the success of the later 1950s and the securing of the very first Constructor’s Cup in 1958. He also reappraises the contributions of Costing and Chapman, and offers another interpretation of Vanderwell’s part in the story.

Hardback in excellent ‘as new’ condition.
