5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant., 13 Sept. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Glory of Goodwood : The Spiritual Home of British Motor Racing (Hardcover)
The enthusiastic scepticism of Mike Lawrence, the historical eye of Doug Nye and the interviewing skills of Simon Taylor combine to make this a fascinating social and racing history of the Goodwood circuit. It's probably Mike's best book yet (though I seem to say that about everything he writes); his dry wit and eye for a curious anecdote makes the main text of the book superb reading. Taylor's interviews counterpoint the text perfectly.
If the text stood alone this would still be a superb book; however, it's beautifully presented (a large-format book with superb photographic reproduction, containing a mixture of period illustrations and recent photos from the Revival meeting in '98. (My only minor quibble is these are sometimes intermixed rather arbitrarily... which is actually a compliment to the perfect period atmosphere the revival meeting creates!)
The photos will satisfy those who keep their racing books on the coffee table; the text those of us who keep them on the shelves. There really is something for everyone here. Buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant story behind the best British circuit of the 50's and 60's, 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Glory of Goodwood : The Spiritual Home of British Motor Racing (Hardcover)
In depth account behind the greatest circuit that saw some of the best motor racing of the 50's and 60's. How it began its war history and the vision to make it a cracking circuit. Then step by step how Lord March brought it back to life in the 90's to host THE classic motor racing meeting in the world. What an achievement! well written it can be browsed or read cover to cover and a new perspective or fact can be picked up every time you pick it up. A real must for any fan of motor racing when all the drivers and teams were hero's.
