MOTOR SPORTS: A Pictorial History

Email this review


Eighty years of automobile racing from the inter-city races of the 1890's to the speed trials, drag racing, autocross and rallies of today. Along the route: the Gordon Bennett cup, the legendary Peking-Paris run of 1907, various Land Speed records, thrills and spills at Le Mans, the Grand Prix and Indianapolis. Flower, a retired rallier, proceeds decade by decade with maps of classic circuits, 208 monochromes and 26 color plates. Straightforward mass entertainment for your king of the roads.
