Product description


Following the Championship Auto Racing Teams (CART), from its formation in 1979 through to the completion of its 20th season of competition, this history looks at how the new series developed and grew into the entertaining form of racing that makes it so popular today. CART was born out of the dissatisfaction of a group of Championship Car team owners, who unhappy with the way in which the sport was run, set up a rival racing series for single-seater cars of the type raced in the Indianapolis 500. This history examines the reasons why the 18 team owners decided break away and form their own competition and it looks at the structure and aims of the new championship. The book identifies racing trends that have developed since CART first started and it also highlights the technological evolution of the cars that has occurred during the same period and the different demands imposed by the wide variety of racing circuits visited. Also profiled are all the leading personalities of the series including the teams, their owners, the drivers and other key personnel.
