Robert Daley. It was an era of daring, dashing drivers piloting incredibly powerful race cars around fast and legendary circuits with only primitive safety equipment to spare them disaster. The book includes sections covering the drivers, cars, factories, practice sessions, race day races and, inevitably, accidents. The text is incredibly compelling, as would be expected from a world-class writer. The design and photo presentation remain true to the original edition, published in 1963, and are supplemented by a new introduction and epilogue and revised captions. A rare period piece certain to delight racing fans.

SpeedTV.com, May 2007
“In The Cruel Sport Robert Daley gives the reader a double-dose of his remarkable talent. [It] offers unique glimpses into the glorious bygone era of Grand Prix racing. The photographs ... are unique portraits that have hung in some of the world’s finest art galleries. The text complements the photographs and vice versa. The portraits are spectacular, but the text may be even better. The book is full of great quotes, tidbits of trivia and interesting facts. The Cruel Sport deserves a place of honor on every Formula One fan’s bookcase. I give it four out of five lug nuts.”
Australian Classic Car, September 2006
“[Daley’s] writing style is a delight to read and the photos are excellent ... It captures the feeling of those more carefree if dangerous days and for that alone it’s worth adding to your bookshelves ... it’s our book of the month.”
