Format: 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 book is just beautiful. I was initially disappointed at the A-Z format but that melted away as I read. The photos are fascinating and I was left thinking why on earth didn't I beg, steal, borrow and hitch hike my way to Sicily to see this marvel. If I'd known then that this was the golden years of motor sport I would have given up my education to see more of it. I loved amongst many others, the picture of Vic Elford being pushed down a back alley on a 908 by a "bib and braced" Porsche mechanic, already helmeted and balaclava'd, ready to fire it up and go out and do battle. Good blend of very informative text and lovely photos

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.

If you are interested in the Targa Florio race and race cars of the FIM World Championship of Makes this book Super!
Especially the photographs of Bernad Cahier are a welcome addition, and I wish to see them used more.
Making chapters according to the alphabets is also a nice idea. I can only recommend!
