World Encyclopaedia of Racing Drivers #2# definitive reference of 2500 international racing drivers

by Peter Higham

This book is 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.

Every driver to have featured in the Formula 1 World Championship is included here, as well as pre-war Grand Prix stars, race winners from Indycars to NASCAR, the leading lights at Indianapolis and Le Mans, and national and international champions from all parts of the globe.

Each entry contains a list of key race and championship wins alongside biographical information and is illustrated by a portrait photograph where possible, with many in colour.

This book unearths the stories behind the statistics, of motor racing's great heroes and previously unheralded characters. It includes a racing suicide, drug-running, industrial espionage, an elopement in a race-winning car, film stars and racing heroics.

Containing nearly a million words, this magnificent publication is a definitive biographical reference, a reliable source of statistics, a diverse collection of portrait photographs and a mine of factual information.

The result of many years of endeavour by a dedicated author, the World Encyclopaedia of Racing Drivers breaks new ground in motor racing research and will be treasured by anyone interested in the history of the sport.
