Illustrated with line drawings. From the cover: “This is a celebration of Grand Prix motor racing, illustrated with superb original artwork. Authoritative surveys of the major aspects of the modem sport are set against the background of seventy-five years of eventful history. This is traced from the formative period when Edwardian behemoths were driven by truly heroic men, through a first Golden Age in the 1920s when Duisenberg, Fiat, Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, and Delage forced the technical pace, and their drivers became the first aces of the sport, to the 1930s when the mighty Mercedes and Auto Union teams raised the speeds and the stakes and the names of such drivers as Chiron, Nuvolari, Caracciola, and Rosemeyer became legendary. The early World Championship races are reviewed, and a new generation of cars, from Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Mercedes, and Vanwall, and their drivers — Ascari, Fangio and Hawthom among them — are recalled in perspective. Throughout, the major teams which. Contested the Grands Prix are presented, with descriptions of their most famous cars.”
