An Illustrated History
The story of motor racing at Goodwood from 1948 to
1966 covers the most exciting era in the post-war
history of the sport. During the 1950s, talented British
drivers, designers and manufacturers came together
as a force that could take on the rest of the motor-racing
Goodwood earned a special place in the motorsport
history of those years and in the affections of those
who competed and spectated there. In this sympathetic,
authoritative and finely illustrated account, Robert
Barker recaptures something of the unique atmosphere
of those pioneering days and celebrates the commitment
and ingenuity of the enthusiasts who transformed British
motor racing after the war.
"Barker packs in the facts... Superb value."
