9780837602011: The Racing Driver: The Theory and Practice of Fast Driving

When The Racing Driver was first published in the U.S. in 1959, Road & Track magazine hailed it as an "excellent book . . . the best ever written on contemporary drivers and their racing styles and habits." Over 45 years later, Denis Jenkinson's book has become a classic, highly valued for its historical perspective and views into the personalities of drivers who today seem larger than life.

Descrizione libro Bentley (Robert) Inc.,US, United States, 1997. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Denis Jenkinson s classic The Racing Driver was first published in 1959 and has remained a must-have for any racing library. Over thirty years later this book is highly valued for its historical perspective and views into the personalities of men who today seem larger than life. Jenkinson is the only person who covered thousands of miles as a racing passenger with the most famous Grand Prix drivers of the fifties, including Stirling Moss, Juan Manual Fangio, and Mike Hawthorn. This new release of The Racing Driver contains new material, including a new preface by the author himself. The foreword is by Stirling Moss, who won the 1955 Mille Miglia with Jenkinson at his side. In addition there are two new appendices. One is a discussion between the author and Ayrton Senna about the psychological attributes of the modern race driver. Senna talks about the tension, stress and anticipation leading up to a race and what it feels like on the track competing for the checkered flag. The other appendix is a tribute to Jenkinson by Doug Nye, a close friend and author who recognizes Jenkinson s style both as a writer and a unique character. Whether you are interested in vintage racing, historical accounts of famous drivers or driving techniques that are important even in today s racing, The Racing Driver will provide a greater understanding of the skills and abilities required to be a winning driver.
