This new book shares the title of Anthony Pritchard’s landmark book about this fabulous aspect of 1960s sports car racing - the big contest, played out above all at Le Mans, between Ford and Ferrari. The original book, which was published in 1968, when the battle between these two great marques was still ongoing, forms the basis of the new project, but the text is completely rewritten and much expanded to include material that was not available at the time. Above all, this new is incomparable visually, and contains an exceptionally comprehensive and well-balanced selection of photographs, both color and black and white, portraying the two teams and their rivals, the races, drivers, engineers and mechanics in the greatest detail on and off the track, in the paddock at race meetings, in factories and in workshops. 

Anthony Pritchard, a well-known and prolific motorsport historian, is the author of a number of successful Haynes books including race histories of Aston Martin, Lotus, Maserati, Porsche and also the Mille Miglia.
