Long Forgotten Races - 1954-1965
Do you know who won the 1957 Syracuse Grand Prix: or who finished 10th and last in the 1962 Mallory Park 2,000 guineas: and during which lap and why Peter Arundell retired from the rain drenched 1964 Daily Mirror Trophy at Snetterton?
Long Forgotten Races answers these questions, and many more, for it sets out the full statistical results of the non-championship F1 races from 1954 to 1965 as well as recalling those infamous 'Race of Two Worlds' run on the banked Monza circuit in the mid-fifties.In almost every instance the book presents starting grids, practice times, entries, reasons for, and during which lap drivers retired. Additional features include a concise history of the BRDC International Trophy and a compilation of the some of the most memorable races from the fifties and sixties. Will your favourites be amongst them?
This is a complete and fascinating record covering the 145 non-championship F1 races staged during the 2.5 and 1.5 litre eras with diagrams of the 40+ race circuits, many of which are now a distant memory. It is also the sequel to the acclaimed Forgotten Races published by W3 in 2004.
