Book Description

1 Dec 1990 Driving
In his prophetic foreword to The Technique of Motor Racing, Fangio anticipates the importance Piero Taruffi's book would have for a generation of new drivers. Trained as both a racing driver and an industrial engineer, Taruffi provides a unique perspective on the art and science of motor racing. He drove for the works teams of Ferrari, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Mercedes-Benz, and others, in a career that spanned over 25 years and was crowned by his victory in the 1957 Mille Miglia. First published in 1959, The Technique of Motor Racing has become the standard by which other driving texts are measured.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still The best beginner's book on motor racing: 12 May 1997
By A Customer
Taruffi's book is still the best beginner's book on motor racing despite its being decades old! As a former professional racing driver I can tell you that Taruffi presents the concepts a racer needs to master before getting into a car ... in fact, many driving schools use this book as a primary teaching text. Taruffi got it exactly right ... anyone who wants to race, or just do a better job of navigating the local twisty roads, should get this book and savor it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A marvelous technical manual for race driving. 24 Aug 1998
By A Customer
Signor Taruffi, a Civil Engineer, was one of the great race drivers of the 1950's. His engineering background gave him the precision in writing, as well as in driving. Charming, hand-drawn diagrams in this book make the well-written text even easier to grasp. There are plenty of photographs that show famous tracks and great drivers of the past. Oh and, Signora Taruffi's beautiful too....

5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Classic 11 May 2014
The Technique of Motor Racing by Piero Taruffi is an absolute classic book on race car driving technique . No book has ever better described to the reader how to execute a perfect 'four wheel drift' . A truly delightful book fifty five years after it was first published .
