Product description

The Glory of Goodwood: The Spiritual Home of British Motor Racing by Mike Lawrence, Simon Taylor and Doug Nye. An Introduction by Stirling Moss and Foreword by The Earl of March, published by Virgin Books 1999. Hardback with dustjacket. Book is in excellent condition, dustjacket is clean and bright with only some minor bumping to the top and bottom edges and spine. Green cloth boards with gold titling, excellent condition, just minor bumping to top and bottom of spine. Book itself is in excellent condition, clean, bright pages and profusely illustrated. Overall a very decent copy.

Synopsis: A guide to the Goodwood motor circuit, and a celebration of its eventful history and atmosphere. The best drivers of their day - Hawthorn, Brabham, Clark, Moss and Hill - went head to head around Goodwood's famous corners. Alongside the action on the track, Goodwood's very British blend of style, hospitality and derring-do became part of the social fabric of the 1950s and 1960s. The story of Goodwood is brought to life by cherished memories from the great drivers who competed there, including Stirling Moss and Jackie Stewart, as well as more recent arrivals like Damon Hill describing the excitement of racing around Goodwood in a historic car. The book is illustrated with nostalgic images from the Goodwood archives.
