Goodyear & Formula One Air Racing 1947-1967 (Vol. 1)

Retail Price: $24.00

By: Robert S. Hirsch

Learn how this exciting sport caught on, the early players and the governing organizations. Goodyear & Formula One Air Racing books (Vol. 1 & Vol. 2) track technological developments which allowed faster speeds and greater safety.

In 1947 Bill Brennand won at Cleveland in Buster at 165.857 mph. By 1960 Jim Miller in Little Gem was over 200 mph.

Goodyear & Formula One Air Racing 1947-1967 (Vol. 1)

Volume One covers the contributions of the early racers — Art Chester, Steve Wittman, Bill Falck, Tom Cassutt, Bob Downey, Bill Brennand and many others.

The Formula One racing class is without question the most successful class in the history of airplane racing. It has seen more races, more pilots and more airplanes than all other racing classes combined in a half-century lifetime, and has experienced but one important change in its rules in all that time.

Moreover, it is the only formal air racing class to be exported from the U. S. to Europe, and the only class to be recognized by the International Aeronautics Federation (FAI), the world governing body for competitive aviation.

The photographs are previously unpublished. Bob Hirsch's scale drawings have been acclaimed internationally for accuracy and scope.
