Winged Sports Cars & Enduring Innovation #2# Championship for Manufacturers in Photographs, 1962-71

by János Wimpffen

Sports car racing's decade of greatest diversity occurred between 1962 and 1971, perhaps the richest and most exciting period in sports car racing history. This ten-year span featured an epic struggle between the two giants of the sports car world - Ferrari and Porsche - accompanied by a host of successful challengers, including Ford, Alfa Romeo, Shelby Cobra, and Chaparral. Manufacturers were also were locked in fierce contests to develop cutting-edge technology in aerodynamics, engines, and tires. These charismatic cars possessed an unrivaled combination of grace and power.

This meticulously researched and edited photographic essay captures an era of spectacular Manufacturers Championship competition. In addition to covering the major manufacturers, this book explores a fascinating supporting cast of smaller-displacement cars, specialty builders, and "one-offs". Many of the great drivers, team leaders, and constructors are revealed in compelling portraits.

János Wimpffen, author of the critically acclaimed Time and Two Seats and Open Roads & Front Engines weaves each image into the context of that season's racing and the various themes of the era. Most of these photographs have never been published before, and each was personally selected by the author during his visits to archives throughout the world.
