The Racing Driver
The Theory and Practice of Fast Driving
5 1/4 in. x 8 1/4 in.
|"In his search for the
answers he wanted, he learned how to help Eric Oliver bring his sidecar
combination to victory in three World Championships, and myself to win
the Mille Miglia. You don't gain these achievements by being just a passenger!
Readers will be fascinated by his observations, reasonings, and remarks."|
from his Foreword
This release of The Racing Driver contains much new material, including a new preface by the author himself. The new foreword is by Stirling Moss, who won the 1955 Mille Miglia with Jenkinson at his side. Also new are two appendices. The first is a discussion the author had with Ayrton Senna on the psychological attributes of the modern race driver. In the second, Doug Nye, author and close friend, provides a final tribute to Denis Jenkinson.
The Racing Driver will appeal to sports car enthusiasts, particularly those interested in vintage and historic racing. It belongs on the bookshelf beside Taruffi's The Technique of Motor Racing, which it supplements without repeating.
