From the Back Cover:

“There are very few real racers in the world, as opposed to mere racing drivers. They’re the people who have a ruddy good go . . . really take it to a higher level.”—Stirling Moss “Racing cars went fast and made a lovely noise. Formula 1 drivers were starting to make the newspapers. The whole thing was burgeoning.”—Frank Williams Step back in time to the golden age of Formula 1, to a world inhabited by a rare breed of men who lived—and often died—chasing the thrill of speed, the buzz of competition, and the glory of victory. Real Racers combines first-person commentary from legendary figures with some of the finest photography of the era to bring the first two decades of the sport to life in vivid detail, taking the reader on a journey through a race weekend, from arrival at the track to podium celebration. An inimitable glimpse of Formula 1’s classic era, Real Racers is a must-have for every F1 aficionado’s library. Featuring commentary by Sir Stirling Moss * Sir Jack Brabham * Sir Jackie Stewart * John Surtees * Sir Frank Williams

From the Inside Flap:

Combining rare and classic black-and-white and color photography with first-person reminiscences from several of the sport’s greatest legends, Real Racers offers a unique view of the golden age of Formula 1 racing. Focusing on the driver’s point of view, each chapter explores a different event or aspect of a Grand Prix weekend, from arrival at the track, practice, and the start, to the many elements of racing—racecraft, finesse, the sensation of speed, concentration, the inevitable complications—and the joy of victory or the dismay of defeat. An exciting and fresh look at the golden age of Formula 1.
