Item description for Motor Racing and Record Breaking by George Eyston...
Originally published in 1935, Motor Racing and Record Breaking tells the story of the sport from its earliest years. The glamour and excitement of racing reached new heights in the 1930s, as a succession of daredevil drivers in sleek, powerful cars pushed the frontiers of speed and skill. But it was still a dangerous sport, and many of its brightest stars died young in horrific accidents. Written with an insider's eye, Motor Racing and Record Breaking paints a vivid picture of the triumphs, the tragedies and the personalities of the time. Captain George Eyston rose to become of the world's top racing drivers after World War I. In his Rolls Royce Thunderbolt, he was the first man to break the 300mph barrier, setting a land speed record of 312mph in 1937 and on two later occasions.
