The Cruel Sport: Grand Prix Racing, 1959-1967
Motorbooks, 2005 - Transportation - 221 pages
The triumphs and tragedies of 1960s Grand Prix racing Originally published in 1963 - The Cruel Sport covers Grand Prix racing from 1959 through 1967. It was an era of daring, dashing drivers piloting incredlbly powerful race cars around fast and legendary circuits with only primitive safety equipment to spare them disaster. 50 per cent of drivers (and many spectators) were killed due to lack of safety measures. The text is incredibly compelling, as would be expected from a world-class writer. The design and photo presentation remain true to the original, and are supplemented by a new introduction and epilogue and revised captions. A rare period piece certain to delight racing fans.
