The author began writing about motor racing, Grand Prix racing in particular, after he retired from a career in the insurance industry in London.  He has followed the sport since childhood and took many photographs as a young man which were published by Veloce in 2005, revised and reprinted in 2007 - 'Motor Racing. Reflections of a Lost Era'.  Contributions to other works followed.  The author built up an intimate knowledge of the sport and it's personalities at a time when it was open to the enthusiast.  Access to the paddock was always possible and the author has since been privileged to draw upon the experiences of numerous personalities he came to recognize all those years ago.  That knowledge has been put to good use in these pages.  This book opens up the past, revealing unpublished stunning photographs from motor racing history, and examines the many facets of Grand Prix racing before the dominance of television. Here are stories of derring-do and racing that constantly pushed the boundaries of technology, beginning in the 1930s when the German Auto Unions and Mercedes were heavily subsidized by the Nazi regime to strengthen their engineering might. This produced the most powerful racing cars ever (at least until the turbocharged cars of the 1980s), and was followed by the postwar era that saw the BRM V16 bring prestige to Great Britain. A beautiful look at a fascinating time in motor racing.
