The Vanwall was one of the Great Green hopes of British motor sport in the 1950s. The brainchild of the industrialist Guy Anthony Vanderwell, the Vanwall Grand Prix car was built to beat the all-conquering red cars from Italy that dominated the Grand Prix scene at that time. Here, Ed McDonough represents the history of Vanwall in new light, form the team's slow beginnings after Vanderwell's break away from BRM to the success of the later fifties and the securing of the very first Constructors' Cup in 1958. Reappraising the contributions of Costin and Chapman, and offering a fresh interpretation of Vanderwell's part in the story, this is a book that will be welcomed by all fans of historic motor sport.
