Book Description

29 Jun 2006 In Camera
Building on the success of Haynes' two previous titles in this series, which covered the 1970s and 1980s, this book takes a nostalgic look at the 1960s. Offering the same combination of informative text, race statistics and glorious colour photography, it brings alive the heroic era of Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Stirling Moss, Jackie Stewart, John Surtees, Bruce McLaren, Jack Brabham and Jochen Rindt. For many fans, this was the era when Formula 1 was at its peak - thrilling and dangerous, but still a sport.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1st Place On The Podium 23 April 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is wonderful. Simply wonderful. For anyone approaching 50 who has or had even a passing interest in motor racing this book will bring back so many evocative memories.
The cars are magnificent; stick thin tyres, mirrors you couldn't see to shave in and safety measures so poor that if they were doubled, it meant that somebody had put a second hay bale out.
I cannot allow the criticism of some of the photos for their lack of sharp detail. remenber, the cameras used then were of a design that had changed little from WW2-and as any schoolboy nows, blur = action.
Haynes-Amazon are to be congratulated on these books. You can actualy smell the burning rubber.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Walk Down Formula One Memory Lane 1960-69 7 Dec 2006
Format:Hardcover
Summary: Stunning visual record of Formula 1 racing in the 1960's.

This is an amazing book. It is exactly as the publishers synopsis indicates - a truly wonderful photographic account of Formula One racing during the 1960's. Some photo's are a bit on the blurry side - but these are made up in quantity and variety and there are some absolutely stunning photo's of the era. Most of the images are backed up with interesting anecdotes that provide highly entertaining and informative reading.

The book is very well laid out - each year is preceded with a short and concise summary of events that take place that year and is concluded with a page of data covering teams and drivers, results etc. Very concise and not overdone as is the case with so many books of this type.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who cherishes the memories of the Formula One era of the 1960's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brave men in mad machines 29 July 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a really good book. If you want in-depth facts and figures, this book will not provide that as it was not supposed to. The photos are good, but not as varied as the later books, but that may be down to camera technology.

It was good to see how the F1 cars changed between 1960-1969, and I liked some of the shots of the engines and mechanical hardware. Honda's car with its octopus-like exhuast (McLaren F1 call their current exhaust the octopus) showing outside the back of their car is impressive. I have the bookes covering the later years, and the 1950-59 on preorder. I recommend this and the other books, and hope to see an `F1 in Camera 1990-1999' book.
