Sports Car and Competition Driving (Paperback)
Paul Frere - Le Mans winner, Grand Prix driver, and Road & Track magazine's European editor - has prepared a new edition of his classic, Sports Car and Competition Driving. First published in 1963, Sports Car and Competition Driving sold tens of thousands of copies, establishing it as a standard reference on driving. In his revised edition, Frere builds on the strengths of the original by explaining how to meet the new challenges posed by radical new developments in automotive technology. What separates Frere's book from other driving texts is his unique blend of theory and practice, based on a career as racer and trained engineer: Memorable observations on how to go faster combined with sophisticated discussions of the physics that govern a car. With 78 photographs and illustrations, Sports Car and Competition Driving is required reading for all those interested in racing or in becoming a more masterful road driver.
