Reader's note

The first motoring competition was the Paris-Rouen Trial of 1894. Since then, men and women have been fascinated by the car as an instrument of sport and in eighty years it has become the most sophisticated form of competition known to mankind. Few of the thousands of books on this complex subject have successfully compressed so much into a volume of this size which covers motor racing in considerable depth and defines other forms of motorsport concisely. There are details and results of the great races, information about the most outstanding drivers, maps of all the significant circuits of the world and an insight into the organization of the sport at both club and international levels.
