Real Racers: Formula 1
in the 1950s and 1960s
A Driver's Perspective. Rare and Classic Images from the Klemantaski Collection
Author: Stuart Codling
The visceral sensations of driving a Formula 1 race car in the 1950s and 1960s are brought to life through the extraordinary images of the Klemantaski Collection (one of the world’s largest and finest archives of motorsports photography) and first-person accounts from the drivers who experienced them. Original commentary from F1 legends Sir Stirling Moss, Sir Jackie Stewart, Sir Jack Brabham, John Surtees, and Sir Frank Williams and carries the reader through a Grand Prix weekend, from arrival at the track, practice and setup, the start of the race, and the race itself. A must-have for all Formula 1 aficionados.
"F1 racing in the 1950s and 1960s was a different sport. And Real Racers does a superb job of immersing you in that era, thanks to the images from the huge Klementaski Collection. This is a visual feast, with enough words to help you understand the world of Moss, Brabham, Stewart, Hill, Gurney, Surtees and others.” Road & Track
