“Begin to read as little as
one page, glimpse just
one photo and you’ll be
hooked. Pour yourself
some coffee, brew a
cuppa tea, or maybe
uncork a bottle of wine
and curl into your favorite
chair. You won’t be going
anywhere for a while.”

  to the many obscure rounds of the Grand Touring Cups of the 1960s.
• Chassis numbers of most entrants.
• Complete coverage of the official FIA Sports Car Championship, plus the classic
  “Triple Crown” endurance races of Le Mans, Daytona, and Sebring. Also included are

• Diagrams of each circuit, including each variation.
• Illustrated with more than 600 photographs, including the works of Cahier, Goddard,
  and Friedman, plus dozens of others—most never before published!
