Autocourse: 60 Years of World Championship Grand Prix Motor Racing
For fans of Formula One racing, there may be no greater story told than that on the pages of Autocourse: 60 Years of World Championship Grand Prix Motor Racing by Alan Henry. This sprawling book details the history of F1 from its roots before the Second World War, and follows it all the way through present day. Highlights include the dominance of the Italian racers of the 1950s, the emergence of British challengers like Lotus in the 60s, and the rise of the turbocharged Hondas of the 80s. And if the cars weren't enough, names like Giuseppe Farina, Colin Chapman, and Michael Shumacher inhabit these chapters, as does a vast collection of vivid color and black and white images. Autocourse fully captures the drama and discourse of the Formula One legacy.
