FANTASTIC PICTURES - AWESOME READING Jun 24, 2008
Wonderfully written blending a good mixture of historical and current information. Very nice photo's showing historical tracks and racing, and how the track looks today. This would be a good book to take along with you if you were a historic track hunter. The research and finding these tracks must have been time consuming and frustrating to say the least! If I only had one suggestion, include GPS coordinates to speed the process of finding these tracks (for people like myself who travel to Europe, successfully convince the wife to spend half a day looking for something that may or may not be in existence (Rouen Les Essarts), and squander that half day never finding anything). I hope Mr. Collins releases more books like this one, and/or inspire more people to do similar work.
