Grand Prix Circuits
Maps and Statistics from Every Formula One Track
Since the first Formula 1 World Championship race in 1950, 71 venues have hosted Grands Prix, from historic circuits with their roots in the early years of motoring, such as Monza and Monaco, to the latest tracks built to the specifications of the modern sport, such as Abu Dhabi, Shanghai and Sochi. This book profiles all the layouts, with a track plan, brief history and statistics for each, and photographs of historic Grand Prix action. Slightly off-mint.
The Mercedes-Benz W 196 R Racing Car
Juan Manuel Fangio dominated Grand Prix racing in the 1950s and, driving the iconic Mercedes-Benz W196 in the 1954 and 1955 seasons, won eight of his twelve races. With archive photographs, statistics and historical background, this volume describes individually the twelve races of those two summers in which the W196R competed – the last appearances of a Mercedes car in Formula 1 until the 21st century.
Autocourse 60 Years of World Championship Grand Prix Motor Racing
The powerful engines of the Italian and German teams dominated the early years of the Formula 1 World Championship before British challengers began to emerge in the 1960s and 1970s with innovative chassis designs and performance-enhancing aerodynamics. This highly illustrated volume charts the whole history of the championship from its pre-war precursors and daredevil early racers such as Fangio, Moss and Clark to the developments, teams and star drivers of the ultra-professional, high-tech modern sport.
Closer to the Action in the 80s and 90s
Bryan Apps has been observing the motor racing scene since the 1950s and through his friendship with team owner Ken Tyrrell was invited into the pits and paddock of every British Grand Prix between 1985 and 1997. This portfolio of his photographs of those events presents an access-all-areas view of the cars, drivers, mechanics and team managers during a period that saw British wins for Mansell, Herbert and Hill, and all-time greats such as Senna, Prost and Schumacher locking horns.
