The Pursuit of Victory 1930-1962
This book opens up the past, revealing unpublished stunning photographs from motor racing history, and examines the many facets of Grand Prix racing before the dominance of television. Here are stories of derring-do and racing that constantly pushed the boundaries of technology, beginning in the 1930s when the German Auto Unions and Mercedes were heavily subsidized by the Nazi regime to strengthen their engineering might. This produced the most powerful racing cars ever (at least until the turbocharged cars of the 1980s), and was followed by the postwar era that saw the BRM V16 bring prestige to Great Britain. A beautiful look at a fascinating time in motor racing.
