The British motorsport scene has always been renowned for brave innovation and this was certainly the case during the exciting time described by this book. An enthusiast’s reflective pot-pourri, in words and intimate paddock scenes, photographed in black and white and color beginning from the mid-1950s and through the 1960s, when motor racing was still accessible to all, and, finally the 1970s when overt sponsorship and television changed the sport forever, a defining era. Illustrated with 300 extensively captioned photos, many previously unpublished. Including continental race circuits, the cars and the personalities.

Stirs wonderful memories

Motor racing is all about progress, and we shouldn’t stand in the way of it. But while the technology has progressed, the human side of the sport has been diminished. This book provides some wonderful memories of an age when you could get close to what was happening at the track, and has had me enthralled since being given it as a birthday present.

This has been on my Amazon wishlist for some time – so it was nice to finally pick it up as a present to myself. Having spent the last couple of evenings dipping in and out of this tome I can safely say that I am very happy with my purchase.

This is one of the most beautiful motor sport books I have in my library until now! Only inside paddock impressions that show us how accessible the sport was; normal, human and hospitable, top craftman’s work, unspoiled and really dangerous. Total absence of securituy people and boasting hospitality managers… ah, what a beautiful epoque! A must have for every amateur of the history of motor sport!!!

I bought this as a companion to Anthony Carter’s “Pursuit of Victory 1930 – 1962” and wasn’t disappointed. Buy this as a present for young F1 enthusiasts to show them what proper Grands Prix were like with drivers who didn’t think that they were prima donnas. Highly recommended.

Great memoirs
