The 1960s was an evocative but brutal decade in sports-car racing and still essentially unchanged from its late 1950s origins during the first two or three seasons; ditto the venues.
Here in colour and monochrome are the machines, their intrepid drivers and the many and varied circuits, some of them still public roads, which provided a stunning period backdrop that remained largely au naturel.
Featuring evocative full-colour photographs throughout, this book depicts one of the most exciting decades in the history of Formula 1. Also containing team, driver and results listings for each year, this beautiful and nostalgic book is enriched, as always, by the author’s meticulous picture research and well-observed commentary. Formula 1 in the 1960s was the story of British promise fulfilled. Here, in this captivating all-colour book, is a detailed photographic portrait of the decade using rare images from a period that was largely seen in black and white through newspapers, magazines and books. It was a truly heroic and savage era, often conducted over unprotected roads in fragile machines at the mercy of fate. English-speaking drivers reigned supreme through this period, winning all ten drivers’ titles. Jack Brabham, Phil Hill, Graham Hill, Jim Clark, John Surtees, Denny Hulme and Jackie Stewart were the World Champions, but other significant drivers within the British, Commonwealth and American elite were Stirling Moss, Bruce McLaren, Dan Gurney and Mario Andretti.
