Argetsinger Michael

Formula One At Watkins Glen 20 Years Of The United States Grand Prix, 1961-1980

Formula One at Watkins Glen presents a vivid and often intimate account of the 20-year period that the United States Grand Prix was held at the classic upstate New York track. Author Michael Argetsinger was a young man when his parents, Cameron and Jean, first brought Formula One to Watkins Glen, and he grew up working with racing as the family business. Now, on the 50th anniversary of F1 at the Glen, he brings us his firsthand perspective on this unforgettable era. Spectacular photographs combine with Argetsinger’s detailed commentary to capture the distinctive character of each year’s event. The story begins with rare images of the Formula Libre races from 1958 through 1960 that featured a sprinkling of top European drivers, Formula One cars, and sports cars, and set the stage for Watkins Glen’s first world championship grand prix. Stirling Moss, Phil Hill, Dan Gurney, Jack Brabham, Joakim Bonnier, Roy Salvadori, and Olivier Gendebien were the drivers who made early impressions and ultimately helped champion Watkins Glen as the site of the USGP.
