Customer Review

on 7 July 2014
Another excellent volume in the history of the greatest race on earth. A huge subject, even split into decades, Spurring nevertheless makes it all easily accessible for either a quick dip in and out or sustained reading thanks to a format that covers all the cars, the results and the background politics of each race or decade in easily digestible chunks.

Clearly an expert on the race and the characters involved, Spurring's text conveys both the enthusiasm and skepticism you'd expect from a former editor of Autosport magazine. Even the lowliest of runners is reported in an engaging, illuminating way adding depth to races I thought i knew well.

The photography is illustrative rather than arty and all the better for it, conveying the atmosphere of the races and the period rather than the skill of the photographer. There are other books for that.

Surely now the definitive work on the race, at least in English.
