THE DEFINITIVE HISTORY... THE FULL STORY THIS IS MUCH MORE THAN A BOOK JUST ABOUT MOTOR RACING. IT’S ABOUT PEOPLE.



 



It’s about Fred Craner and John Gillies Shields, the pioneers who created the UK’s first permanent road racing circuit in 1931. It’s about how Donington progressed from rough gravel tracks to hosting the legendary “Silver Arrows” Grands Prix, all in just nine seasons. It’s about how the Army took over during the war years and the many attempts that came close to bringing racing back in the 1960s. It’s about the Tom Wheatcroft era and how his son Kevin saved the circuit once again in recent times. AND IT’S ABOUT THE LATEST CHAPTERS OF TODAY AND AN EXCITING FUTURE… HARD COVER with jacket, 348 PAGES LANDSCAPE FORMAT 230 x 290 PAGE SIZE INCLUDES: • OVER 350 ILLUSTRATIONS, MAPS, DIAGRAMS AND UNIQUE THEN-AND-NOW IMAGES • CONTRIBUTIONS FROM TOM AND KEVIN WHEATCROFT, SIMON TAYLOR, DOUG NYE, RICK HALL, IAN PHILLIPS, TIM PARNELL, NEVILLE HAY AND MORE • EXTRACTS FROM BILL BODDY’S ON-THE-SPOT PRE-WAR RACE REPORTS
