Format: Hardcover
In just over 900 pages Higham provides a reference and statistical history of pretty much every major form of international and national motor racing - F1, F2/F3000, F3, sports cars, USAC/CART/IRL, NASCAR, touring cars, summaries of the major circuits, national championships, drivers, and marques - in short, this is a mighty achievement.
The major races and championships usually have race-by-race results including the first six, pole and fastest lap; lesser series tend to just have race winners documented, and more minor national-level series just have the overall series winners listed. This is a reasonable space compromise, otherwise Higham's 900-odd pages would probably be nearer 9000!
Within the constraints of what can be fitted into one affordable volume and read without a magnifiying glass, this book is magnificent, and belongs on the shelf of all serious racing fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely priceless 13 Sept. 2003
By Michigan BADMO - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It seems that Mr. Higham has spent years searching through dusty basements and smelly photo archives to assemble all of this information. If you're interesed in finding out who won what when, this is the book for you. A bit mind-numbing really, as there is so much information gathered here that it is overwhelming.
For the serious anorak, there is nothing like this volume!
Highly recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reference 31 May 2011
By R. L. Beegle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book attempts the impossible task of covering virtually all of the world's major auto racing series' in one volume, as well as discussing racing circuits and race drivers. Considering that fact the author has done an amazing job of distilling all of this information into one, easy to handle volume.

The item description perfectly describes this book, and to anyone whose interest is piqued by the description, adding this book to your library would be well worth it. I bought this book in 2005, and I still look at it fairly often in 2011. My hope is that someday we will see an updated edition.
4.0 out of 5 stars Very Well Done 19 Mar. 2010
By Clayton D. Haisley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is very well done and a nice follow up to the prior edition and I would recommend having both since the first volume does feature certain things not covered in the follow up, such as the now defunct IROC series. My understanding is that IROC was continued up past 2002, so why it is not in the follow up is beyond my grasp. I hope a more current edition is published in a year or so, and if it is, I plan on purchasing it as well. The data provided in these books is invaluable. Highly recommended, but this edition I feel is not worthy of 5 stars as it lacks input on the ARCA, NASCAR lower tier series, and IROC, but given that what it does contain dwarfs what it doesn't I'd certainly give it 4 stars.
5.0 out of 5 stars As complete as it gets in one volume 3 May 2010
By SpeedyZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an indipensible reference work for the motor racing enthusiast. Unfortunately, the web is making books of this type rare. Vital stats for every major series, driver, and circuit are included. The presentation and commentaries are readable and enlightening. Hopefully another volume is forthcoming from Mr. Higham but if not, this book provides a comprehensive overview of automobile racing in the 20th century within the covers of a single volume. Highly recommended.
