Product description

Review

'This is an evocative and compelling account by an author who knows and loves his subject. Whether describing men, machines or races, Williams writes with understanding, sympathy and real authority. You sense the spirit of the times in his pages, and you almost smell the nitromethane that fired up those engines. But have a care - after reading it you may fine yourself driving faster. I did. (Alan Judd SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

Williams wears his knowledge and enthusiasm for such bygone days like a badge of honour..... beautifully and passionately written. (David Tremayne THE INDEPENDENT)

William's touch remains sure....... the glamour of the event still beguiles, almost half a century later. (Alasdair Reid SUNDAY TIMES)

The author presents us with a very human story - and a good yarn, too - that comes to life with interviews with the surviving drivers. (Stuart Downward THE OBSERVER)

Richard Williams's elegant narrative. (Timothy Rice THE TIMES)

Book Description

The story of the 1957 Pescara Grand Prix - the last race of the heroic age of motor racing
