Racing CarsBook - 1999
From the first Grand Prix winner of 1906 to the latest Ferrari Formula 1 car, from the Type 35 Bugatti of 1924 to the record-breaking Thrust SSC, Supreme Machines Racing Cars chronicles the quest for mastery of the auto race track from the early 1900s to the present day. Watch as a Blower Bentley wins Le Mans in 1927, speed along with Juan Manuel Fangio to win the 1957 German Grand Prix, and blast around the curves of a modern Indianapolis 500. At the end of the book you can find out how a Formula 1 car is built and see where racing car design is heading in the next millennium.
