The glamour and exhilaration of the golden days of motorsport cannot be matched, ringing with the names of famous international marques: Bentley, MG, ERA and Aston Martin; Bugatti, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Auto Union and Alfa Romeo. Using extracts from contemporary race-reports along with expert advice on competitive driving and vintage advertisements, this new title takes a light-hearted look at motor racing from its earliest origins up to the beginnings of Formula 1. Featuring great names like Juan Fangio and Malcolm Campbell; eccentric personalities like the Siamese racing Prince 'Bira'; famous races such as the Mille Miglia and the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and iconic tracks from Brooklands to the Nurburgring, The Racing Driver's Pocket Book evokes the unique spirit and elan of the period. It also focuses on the cars that achieved lasting fame, such as the famous German `silver arrows' of the 1930s, and explains racing terminology and tactics - outlining track rules and regulations, as well as providing a few pointers on appropriate racing attire.
