5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 10 Nov 2012

Verified Purchase
I bought the book on a recommendation of a friend although I have several of the authors other books released by the same publishers. I'm tempted to say that the book is amazing value for money (which it is) but this really undersells it. If you forget its ridiculously low price, it is, in any event, an absolutely superb pictorial record of what many people see as the best era of Sports Car Racing. Its not a complete statistical record - far from it, but its the best photo coverage I've come across in any book, whatever its price. I cant recommend it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow it is stunning! 13 Dec 2012

Based on the price, I ordered this book with some trepidation. I needn't have worried. Wow it is stunning, beautifully presented and lavished with superb photographs. The layout is based on the sports car racing's top events and locations. These are Nurburgring, Le Mans, Targa Florio, Monza, Spa, Brands Hatch, Osterreichring and Watkins Glen. With over 500 pages this is quite some publication. A must for anyone interested in sports car racing. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic..!! 20 Dec 2012
This book was purchased for me and sent by post with an "excellent"recommendation that I wouldn't be disappointed upon its arrival. Well that was exactly right.The price is amazing for such a Fantastic photographic record of what can be described as possibly the greatest period of sports car racing.The photos capture superb moments in history the race ,the circuits,the drivers,the personalities.That makes a pleasant change from some of the clinical boring celebrity driven types we have now.It shows us the very special talented people in all aspects of the sport.I particularly like the human style photos the less than glamourous stills of the engineers,the drivers the team managers working with their magnificent machines.The race cars have been captured in all their gloryAlfa Romeo. Ferrari Porsche Matra .This book oozes a lost era of octane fuelled motor racing. Fantastic ......!

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate sports car ride on the wild side... 10 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
Rainer has done it again... I just purchased this book - from of all places - a little bookshop in Australia's beautiful Blue Mountains and I have to say this tome is nothing short of stunning. I publish motor sport books myself ('Formula 5000 Thunder' is our latest effort) and as always his imagery is spectacular and the book an epic in the world of publishing. The easy-to-read lay-out doesn't allow for the photos to be ignored and at well over 500 pages, is a 'must have' for any motor sport fan no matter what genre of the sport they follow. The dedication this man goes to to ensure his images are presented in the right environment means that you, the reader, is taken back to a world that no longer exists, but we all wish could return in the very near future. It was an era when drivers really "drove" the cars, and the tracks didn't allow for a simple mistake. It was a time when the sports cars of the era covered were as fast as any car on earth and the stars of the day spent their spare time racing anywhere and in any category they could; unlike today's hyped up, seemingly spoiled motor racing F1 stars... Too much money, too much everything else. But not the men from this era. What a time to be alive. After buying this book, one can hold tight onto its pages and be transformed back to the great tracks of the era, and you can almost hear the screaming engines as the Porches, Ferraris, McLarens and the like, power past you in coloured and black and white blurs page after page. Oh, to have a Vic Elford or a Jo Siffert running in sports cars once again.

Okay, so I'm waxing lyrical, but this book is a showpiece and to purchase it you will understand where I am coming from. Well worth the money. Tony Loxley.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book 26 Dec 2012
This is a brilliant book on Sportscar racing. If you have any of the Schlegelmilch Formula 1 books you know you can expect some fantastic photography. This book is no exception, the photography is absolutely stunning and all have been printed beautifully by the publisher. There are some unbelievable bargain buys for this book at the moment, all I can say is buy it you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid book and great value. 30 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought this book via Amazon (prompt delivery as always) and was very impressed with the photographs, many of which I had not seen before. The landscape format shows the photos at their very best. There are a few pages with brief description of events at the circuits and some of the main drivers, and these are written in English and seven other European languages.
If you are hoping for details of grid positions and lists of race winners etc then look elsewhere. This book is purely about the photos; lovely shots of race cars from a great era of sports car racing. For those wanting more detail on grid and race positions etc, try the 'Sports car racing in camera' series by Paul Parker, the Le Mans 24 books by Quentin Spurring, or the various sports car racing picture books by Janos Wimpffen (jolly expensive).
This Schlegelmilch book is great. Full marks to Konemann for publishing the book at a very reasonable price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but... 9 July 2013
By JMC
Verified Purchase
Fine book, excellent photography. Nevertheless, I found that the 1969-1971 era is a bit underrepresented, in special the amazing 917's of Gulf Porsche and (this one totally missing!) the fantastic Ferrai 512M in the Penske-Sunoco blue/yellow livery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Packed full of awesome images
It is very much 500 pages of superb photography and incredible images, as there's very little text throughout the book.

Very much worth the buy at the price.
