The Limit: Life and Death in Formula One's Most Da&hellip by Michael Cannell
An excellent read for all motor racing fans young and old. For the mature reader like me it brings back the reality of the racing our boyhood heroes like Moss, etc were involved in. For the younger reader it describes the roots of Grand Prix racing, especially the fascinating role played by the great Enzo Ferrari.

Running alongside is the effect this kind of work has on the friendships of the main character. If you are a fan of F1 enjoy the read.

Today, i gave F1 2011 a go, and was absolutely stunned. on 100% feedback it was violent! So… Read more
