5.0 out of 5 stars Great race, great book, 24 Feb 2014
This review is from: Targa Florio: 1955-1973 (Hardcover)
One of the best gifts I’ve ever received, (thanks Chris!). A beautifully printed and constructed book. It should be required reading for any young, contemporary racing fan who is fed up with hearing from us older ones that everything was so much better then. In the superb photographs they will glimpse the raw quality of Fifties/Sixties/Seventies motor racing – raw in terms of: the dangerous and threatening physical intrusion of circuits on the men and machines; the rough and ready conditions under which cars were prepared and repaired; the uncomplicated nature of the drivers themselves in a role unencumbered by off-track commerciality considerations; the beauty of visible and understandable engineering. All that contrasts very starkly with the clinical, technically arcane activity of today, largely conducted on circuits with little intrinsic character or mystical challenge.

This review is from: Targa Florio: 1955-1973 (Hardcover)
An evocative visual tribute to the great Italian road race. Beautifully presented with high production values. I do not now feel the need to own any other books about the Targa.
