The History of British Drag Racing
By: Brian Taylor
Foreword: Don Garlits
This colourful and entertaining book, the first comprehensive history of drag racing in the UK, is a must for all fans of this exciting sport.
Dramatically illustrated, it traces the roots of drag racing from its UK sprinting and American speed trial and hot-rodding origins in the early 1900s, moving on to the landmark opening of Santa Pod in 1966, through the boom periods of the 1970s and 1980s, and finishing with the sport's rejuvenation in recent years.
Meticulously researched, this book features many historic photographs and a wealth of first-hand memories from the leading protagonists.
