Legendary drivers, the FBI, Howard Hughes…it’s a big story but the track was short-lived and pretty much forgotten until two local boys with racing interests put this fine book together.
by Ray Gillottti
The 917 story told from a specific angle, that of the John Wyer team whose tech chief really made the car fly. You may have stacks of 917 books already but you’ll not want to miss this one.
by Roger Smith
That this book about 1000 races is limited to 1000 numbered copies is of course merely to be cute—but it is a crying shame. Bristling with data but eminently user-friendly it deserves much wider circulation!

Lovely photos, yes, lots. But they are more than that, if you are inclined to look beyond the surface and parse the authors’ intentions.

You can still see this 1955 car being raced today, with abandon, and successfully. In its day it was the ultimate sports racer. Few have survived in this original a form which is why this is the one to which an entire book is devoted.

Color drawings of fifty racecars highlight what made each one special and allow comparisons of one car to another.
by Dave Friedman
The years at Shelby’s first premises in Venice were critical and the people who worked there young and enthusiastic, Friedman among them. His photos are an insider’s look at that most American of outfits.
by John Aston
This is a book for an unhurried moment when you have the time to roll words around in your head. If your interest is motorsports and the people and places that give it color, all the better but that’s not all you’ll find here.

A prop master on a movie sees a lot. This book is written by one, and he sure did see a lot. It seems it took him years to get over it. If you can’t decide whether you love or hate the movie, this book will at least explain why it all went so very wrong.
by Michael Keyser
It’s almost 50 years ago that this movie was made. It was not a box office hit but—and this is the only thing that mattered to the one person who needed to make it, Steve McQueen—it was true to racing, life and death, few words and big deeds.
by Pete Biro and George Levy
Motor racing regs change pretty much every year but the period captured here, 1958–82, saw especially sweeping core changes in F1. From designers and engineers to drivers and team personnel to, of course, cars and components, this photo book takes you there.
by Robert D. Walker
Old as the Cobra story is, there still is entirely new information out there—here from someone who was not only there but well and truly made it all possible. Two years before he died he finally let someone write his story.
