This book takes you back to experience the high-decibel excitement of the racehorse start, the wingtip-to-wingtip danger 'round the pylons, the elation of the winners on the victory lap and the inescapable air of tragedy at the crash sites. This book is also the story of the development of these great race-planes. With detailed text and over 200 rare vintage photographs and diagrams, it takes you inside the hangar doors to reveal the secrets of horsepower and streamlining that separated the winners from the losers.
