Unfortunately, this title seems to have had a very spotty print run. The first copy I purchased (from another source) had a broken binding and pages that weren't cut cleanly. The second copy I purchased (this time from Amazon) had ink smeared over one of the few color pages. The third copy (exchanged by Amazon for the returned second copy) seems fine. I haven't encountered these quality control problems with the other books in the series. Do yourself a favor and check your copy as soon as it arrives.
But, with that aside, this is a wonderful book!
THE YEAR BY YEAR FORMAT SEEMS TEDIOUS, BUT THE VERBIAGE MAKES UP FOR IT. IF YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW THE FORCES THAT DROVE SPORTS.RACING CARS IN THOSE FORMATIVE YEARS, THIS IS AN EXCELLENT BOOK.
I SAW THESE CARS AND SOME OF THE AMERICAN AND A COUPLE OF EUROPEAN DRIVER'S AT CALIFORNIA EVENTS. AND MANY YEARS LATER, AT THE MONTERREY HISTORICALS.
I DROVE A T.C M.G AND RODE TO COLLEGE IN BOTH AN ALLARD AND A KAISER DARREN. LATER OWNED THE ALLARD.
THE BOOK IS GENEROUS IN COVERAGES OF THE CARS, DRIVERS AND SURROUNDING PERSONALITIES. POLITICS AND VARIOUS COUNTRY'S QUIRKS ARE WELL EXPLAINED.
CLEARLY, IT WAS A VERY SERIOUS WAY TO HAVE A LOT OF FUN. IT SOUNDED AND SMELLED RIGHT. THERE'S PORSCHE'S AND ALL OTHERS, WITH THE ENGINES IN FRONT WHERE THEY BELONG!
THE BOOK CONVEYS THE WORLD OF THE ERA RACING CORRECTLY, AT LEAST IT FITS INTO MY MEMORY PERFECTLY. IS IS A DETAILED ACCOUNT, FOR A TRUE STUDENT OF THE VINTAGE "SPORTS CAR".
JUST GET IN IT AND GO.

As are the other 2 Sports Car Racing in Camera books, EXCELLENT!Published on July 22, 2014 by Alfred E.
My title says it all. Plenty of action shots of 1950 - 1959 sports cars. As a teenager in the 50's, I grew up loving this era of sports car racing.Published on March 22, 2013 by Pete
