This book is considered by many to be required reading for any aspiring race driver. Originally published in 1963, Sports Car and Competition Driving has established itself as one of the most useful and complete books on racing technique. Author Frere understood racecars (as an engineer) and racers (as a Le Mans-winning driver himself). He puts theory into practice, explaining the techniques of driving and exactly why they work.
This new edition has been revised and updated to address new racing technology, rules, and trends. Includes new sections on chassis setup, aerodynamics, all-wheel-drive, and more. Softcover, 156 pages, 78 photos and illustrations.
