Review: Cars at Speed: Classic Stories from Grand Prix's Golden AgeUser Review - Chris - Goodreads
This book is fantastic. Robert Daley was not a racing driver but seems to understand the sport better than most who have written about it. "Cars at Speed" is also great as a piece of history to show how much the sport has changed since the book's publication. Read full review
