9780297645580: The Last Road Race

'This is an evocative and compelling account by an author who knows and loves his subject. Whether describing men, machines or races, Williams writes with understanding, sympathy and real authority. You sense the spirit of the times in his pages, and you almost smell the nitromethane that fired up those engines. But have a care - after reading it you may fine yourself driving faster. I did. (Alan Judd SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

Williams wears his knowledge and enthusiasm for such bygone days like a badge of honour..... beautifully and passionately written. (David Tremayne THE INDEPENDENT)

William's touch remains sure....... the glamour of the event still beguiles, almost half a century later. (Alasdair Reid SUNDAY TIMES)

The author presents us with a very human story - and a good yarn, too - that comes to life with interviews with the surviving drivers. (Stuart Downward THE OBSERVER)

Richard Williams's elegant narrative. (Timothy Rice THE TIMES)

Reseña del editor:

The 1957 Pescara Grand Prix marked the end of an era in motor racing.

Sixteen cars and drivers raced over public roads on the Adriatic coast in a three-hour race of frightening speed and constant danger. Stirling Moss won the race, beating the great Juan Manuel Fangio (in his final full season) and ending years of supremacy by the Italian teams of Ferrari and Maserati.

Richard Williams brings this pivotal race back to life, reminding us of how far the sport has changed in the intervening fifty years. The narrative includes testaments from the four surviving drivers who competed - Stirling Moss, Tony Brooks, Roy Salvadori and Jack Brabham.

This is a brilliant account of one of the great sporting events of the last century, at a time when for a grand prix driver 'the chances of survival were statistically no better than those of a Battle of Britain fighter pilot'.
