Outstanding amongst the cars that raced at the Motor Course at Brooklands, principally in the 1920s, were the giant aero-engined "specials". The sight and sound of these fiery monsters roaring dangerously round the steeply banked outer circuit near Weybridge in Surrey, thrilled a generation. This book looks at this exciting era, telling stories of the record-breaking cars and the charismatic men who built and drove them. The cars range from the 1913 V12 Sunbeam through to the 1933 24-litre Napier-Railton in which John Cobb set the all-time Brooklands lap record.
