4.0 out of 5 stars A treasure trove of ideas, well written but maps lacking
Richard Meaden created a really, really nice book here. Contained therein are the most famous motorsport routes, for which he provides a context, history, personalities involved, as well as a reasonable description of how these can be travelled today.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read, maps not as detailed as hoped for.
Nice book, but to say the maps are detailed and high-quality is overdoing it a bit. From the rally chapters only a few stages are highlighted where a full page map could have displayed perhaps all.

Can be a good start to a great holiday.

Richard Meaden created a really, really nice book here. Contained therein are the most famous motorsport routes, for which he provides a context, history, personalities involved, as well as a reasonable description of how these can be travelled today.

The quality of writing definitely mirrors the one he displays in Evo, and the book (assuming you are a car / travelling enthusiast) will no doubt pull you in. For people on most continents there are routes, or sections thereoff, which can be turned into a road trip without too much hassle or over-ambition, and which are likely to remain very memorable - and the author does an excellent job of instilling an absolute need in the reader to go and try them out.

The one area, where the book falls a bit short, as already mentioned, is in the maps department. It really would add a whole layer of quality, if at the back of the book, detailed maps of all the routes were provided. While this is more of an issue for some routes than others (The Carrera being a particularly lacking example in my opinion), it does require that the book is always complemented by other material, if one is to follow and relive the routes exactly.

Looking forward to doing some of these routes in 2014. A great book, well laid out and with good detail and photographs. Highly recommended for both car enthusiasts and general tourists.

Great book featuring all the classic road races that have been held on public roads. Good background on each race and where the circuit is so you can drive on them.

Good book tackling a difficult subject.
How do you distill the thrill of driving a particular road? Very difficult and this book comes the closest to achieving that.
