Great Racing Drivers

£30.00£36.00

This book was put together by David Hodges and as Hodges explains it makes no claims to be the “best” racing drivers but a series of chapters written by serious historians on successful racing drivers. So, for example, you have a chapter on Camille Jenatzy by Jacques Ickx the father of racing driver Jacky Ickx, Richard von Frankenberg on Carraciola, Bill Boddy on Richard Seaman and Antonio and Alberto Ascari by Gianni Cancellieri.

It is hard cover published in 1966 and what one might call the modern post war racing drivers mentioned are Fangio, Farina, Hawthorn, Collins and Moss . But some of the other earlier drivers covered are Achille Varzi, Huigi Fagioli, Wilbur Shaw and Ralph de Palma all written by noted historians so to my mind a better reference book than going on to the Internet.

I have turned to this book on many occasions to correct a point.

Book in good condition paper cover nibbled.
