Grand Prix Yesterday and Today

Grand Prix Yesterday and Today

by Bruce Jones (Author), Bruce Jones (Author), Bruce Jones (Author), Sir Stirling Moss OBE (Foreword)


Grand Prix Yesterday & Today is a timely celebration of motor racing, dating back to its origins in 1906. Each spread will show a facet of the sport from those pioneering days juxtaposed with a similar one of recent times. Complementing these expertly chosen images are reflections on the situations then and now. The structure of the book allows today's F1 fan to see just how much things have technically changed over the years but paradoxically how many of the fundamentals of motor racing have remained unaltered. Times may change, but Grand Prix remains the compelling spectacle that it always was.
