Grand Prix and sports car racing in the 50s and 60s was just as exciting and fast as it was dangerous. Races were held on public streets as well as on purpose built race tracks. The audience tried to get as close to the action as possible, occasionally with disastrous results. This book was a sensation when it was first published in 1961, and is not less fascinating today. It is a human story, rather than a rational one, that reflects the thrill of this time, but also the cost and is peopled by some of the greatest drivers of all time: Stirling Moss, Juan Manuel Fangio, Phil Hill, Rudolf Caracciola and others.
