Synopsis: This authoritative book gives an overview of fifty classic motor racing engines selected from an eighty-year period starting in 1914, when racing engines emerged as a distinct type of power unit. Including many famous engines as well as others that are less well known, it gives a clear sense of each unit's significance in terms of both its racing history and the advancement of technology. Each unit has a full description, plus technical drawings and photographs.
