From the Publisher:

In the 1957 Pescara Grand Prix, 16 cars and drivers tore over public roads on the Adriatic coast in a three–hour race of terrifying speed and danger. Stirling Moss won the race, beating the great Juan Manuel Fangio and ending years of supremacy by the Italian teams of Ferrari and Maserati. Although Pescara may not have been Moss’ most dramatic victory, none had as great a significance or a more mythic quality. There was never a race like Pescara ’57 again. Now Richard Williams brings this pivotal race back to life, reminding us how much the sport has changed in the intervening 50 years. The narrative also includes commentary from the four surviving competing drivers—Stirling Moss, Tony Brooks, Roy Salvadori, and Jack Brabham. A thrilling account of one of the most remarkable sporting events of the last century.
