About this Item

Carrera Panamericana, History of the Mexican Road Race 1950-1954 by Daryl E Murphy. Published by Motorbooks International, Osceola, WI, 1993. 1st Signed Edition. Hardbound, Paper DJ. Size 4to. Condition: Fine in Good- DJ. Inscribed by author on frontispiece 'David: Enjoy the experiences of Carrera. Happy Birthday Daryl Murphy'. Tape repair to DJ. 192 Pgs. ISBN 0879387343. LCCN 92-33694. In the years after WWII, the American continents began building a great Panamerican highway running from Argentina to Alaska. In 1949, Mexico finished its section, and decided to have a road race to celebrate. Thus was born the Carrera Panamericana Mexico, the Mexican Road Race. Run from 1950-1954, the Carrera was fast, dangerous, and unlike any other race in the world. More grueling than LeMans, four times longer than the Indy 500, more treacherous than the Mille Miglia. This was a World Championship race. This book is a history of the Mexican Road Race told in the colorful words of the men and women who were there. Firsthand accounts and anecdotes retell each of the five races from start to finish; who won, who crashed, and who was sidelined with the Mexican Two-Step. More than 200 rare photographs show the cars, the country and the drivers. Description text copyright 2007 BooksForComfort. Item ID 13383. Bookseller Inventory # 13383
