Description

This is one of the greatest stories ever told - a century of men and machines pitted against each other, death riding at their elbow, risking everything to win. In June 2006, Grand Prix racing will be 100 years old. Here, in one action-packed volume, Christopher Hilton celebrates the full span, from the first race, when horses towed the new-fangled cars to the grid, to the awesome technology of today. It will fascinate both the race fan and general readers who will have the human story spread before them like a feast.

Nuvolari, Varzi, Rosemeyer, Caracciola. The launch of the World Championship in 1950, the majesty of Fangio, the modest genius of Clark.
