about

TheWorld Encyclopaedia of Racing Driversis a remarkable work of unprecedented scale that charts the lives and achievements of over 2,500 racing drivers from 1894 to the present day, from all eras and countries. As well as featuring the many great champions who have graced the world's circuits, this three-volume set also highlights numerous obscure and little-known characters who have made the sport so compelling. The result of many years of endeavor by a dedicated author, this work breaks new ground in motor racing research and will be treasured by anyone interested in the history of the sport.
