Ferrari is the quintessential bearer of Rosso Corsa, Italian Racing Red, in the 21st Century. Rightly so, because Ferrari Grand Prix cars have represented Italy in Formula 1 racing since the World Championship was established in 1950. But as Karl Ludvigsen explains in this stunning new book, there is much more to Rosso Corsa than Ferrari. In the sport’s early years the power to reckon with was Fiat, who also set the pace after World War I. Then a feisty newcomer, Alfa Romeo, carried the Italian flag alongside, the Maserati brothers into the 1930s. Two racing drivers, Felice Nazzaro and Vincenzo Lancia, created their own car marques, one of which stormed into prominence in the 1950s. Italian drivers were to the fore with Tazio Nuvolari, Achille Varzi, Nino Farina, Gigi Villoresi and father and son Antonio and Alberto Ascari. Great races such as the Targo Florio and Mille Miglia, and the iconic circuit Monza, hosted many titanic battles. From Ferrari to Maserati, the Italians have certainly held a prime position in world motor racing. These colourful contestants and many others come to life in the pages of this fabulous volume which are redolent with all the glamour and excitement of fast Italian cars and drivers!

FORD&nbsp;VERSUS FERRARI: THE BATTLE FOR LE MANS - <i>Nuova edizione</i>

This new book shares the title of Anthony Pritchard’s landmark book about the intense rivalry between Ford and Ferrari in the 1960s, played out above all at Le Mans. The original book, published in 1968, when the battle between these two great marques was still ongoing, forms the basis of the new project, but with rewritten and much-expanded text to include material that was not available at the time. The engaging text is accompanied by a stunning selection of photographs, portraying the two marques in atmospheric detail.

JAGUAR XJ13: THE DEFINITIVE STORY OF THE JAGUAR LE MANS CAR AND THE V12 ENGINE

This book tells the inside story of Jaguar’s fabulous Le Mans prototype – gloriously shaped by Malcolm Sayer and arguably the world’s most famous race car never to have turned a wheel in competition! In some 300 pages and 600 illustrations, many in colour, every aspect of XJ13’s origins, design, build and testing is covered by author Peter D. Wilson – who is uniquely qualified for this task because in the early/mid-1960s he was an engineer working in Jaguar’s competition department and helped build the car.
