5.0 out of 5 stars Vital Reference for the Formula Fan 23 Aug 2003
By Stu P.
My copy of this is dog-eared, i've flicked through it so much!!! Essential reference book for anyone into the history of Formula 1 & 2 (and F5000), gives overview of each car and year raced, as well as an accurate lineup of drivers of the particular car during period raced. A new version is out now which I think covers up to 2000?

4.0 out of 5 stars A Comprehensive Reference Work 3 April 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book should be on the shelf of any devotee of motorsport , especially if their interest is focused on cars now regarded as 'historic.' David Hodges has done a fine job in compiling this book . His potted histories of individual marques are absorbing and contain many snippets of interesting background information . If there is a critism of this book ,then it is the authors self-acknowledged ommission of Formula 5000 cars . Had they been included then this book would have been truly outstanding rather than merely good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply a must have 8 Sep 2010
By G. Stratton - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book covers just about every formula car for the European formulas from just after WWII to the beginning of the modern era. Cars for Formula Junior, Formula Libre, Formula One, and everything in between are discussed in amazing detail. It includes not just complete histories of Lotus, McLaren, Brabham, Ferrari, etc, but all the little teams, might have beens, and also rans that made up the sport for nearly fifty years. Get it.
