Alf Francis Racing Mechanic

£45.00£50.00

Truly one of the great classics. This is a 1957 First Edition and as can be seen the paper cover is badly nibbled but this hard cover book is otherwise in very good condition and has been in my library for 63 years!

Alf Francis is best known as Stirling Moss’s mechanic and this book covers his life as a racing mechanic in Europe when there were no autoroutes or motorways, little fuel available and cars that needed proper fettling between races in pits or even out in the countryside such were the schedules for privately entered racing teams where starting money often meant a lot of hardship. It should be required reading for every young enthusiast who dreams of becoming a mechanic in Formula 1 and flying in jets everywhere. Lots of reading and anecdotes and fewer photographs as publishing photographs was more expensive back then.
