Formula 1 Fanatic
The circuits, the cars, the speed.
The fans screaming.
The smell of burning rubber and fuel.
It’s almost unbearable.
Again, the deafening roar of the engines as they soar past.
And the tension never ceases.
Formula 1 is the ultimate sport – a pulsing avalanche of noise, speed, virtually untameable energy and grand spectacle. Heroes are made and weaker men break under the physical strain and mental focus needed to be a Formula 1 World Champion. And yet all this vigorous high-flying life is inextricably tied up with death.
This is the story of one man’s obsession as a fan, that is also the dramatic unfolding of the sport of Grand Prix racing, from the gods of speed of the 1970s to today’s money-making industry.
Condition: Good. A book that has been read but is in good condition. Slight wear of the book cover. No highlighting of text, no writing in the margins, and no missing pages.
