Cyril Posthumus, an experienced motoring journalist, and the author of many books on motor racing, writes the thrill-packed story of the World Championship for Sports Cars.

Sebring, the Mille Miglia, Le Mans and Nurburg, from the first race to the last, he gives a lap by lap account of the highlights of each race, concluding each chapter with a table showing the positions of each firm.

Of particular interest is his account of how, six years after its inauguration, the Championship came into the hands of Aston Martin of Britain for the first time, via Ferrari of Italy and Mercedes-Benz of Germany.

The book ends with the final race in the last series, in I96I (as the World Championship for Sports Cars will be no more). The text is amply illustrated with action photo-graphs.

Hardback in very good, clean condition throughout. Dust cover fair, a little grubby in places with some tape repairs to a tear bottom of spine and some minor scuffing.
