Classic and Sportscar Book of Racing Car Track Tests,
This review is from: "Classic and Sportscar" Book of Racing Car Track Tests (Hardcover)
Fabulous trawl through Willie Greens' back catalogue of racing car track tests, originally published in Classic and Sportscar magazine during the 1980's.
Thirty cars are featured including Bugatti Type 35B, Blower Bentley and V16 BRM. Personal favourites are the incredibly beautiful Aston Martin DRBR1 and the legendary Jaguar D Type.
The text is sufficiently technical without being tedious and Willies' anecdotes regarding racing GT40s' in period are a treat.
Photography is mainly from the "C & S" archive and none the worse for it, with a couple of period images thrown in for good measure.
A fascinating and worthy addition to any enthusiasts collection and remarkable value at current "used values" (Feb 2010)
