ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION (1959) - In a few dramatic motor races down the years the issue has been decided by a single moment of time when fate hung in the balance. Here, vividly recalled by the Sports Editor of The Motor, are nine such moments selected from more than half a century of motor racing’s eventful history—never-to- be-forgotten moments as enduring as the lure of speed itself. The memorable events from which these dramatic moments are recaptured range from the fantastic Gordon- Bennett Trophy Race of 1902 to Juan Fangio's greatest drive in the German Grand Prix of 1957. They include the Race that Nobody Won at Silverstone in 1957, Nuvolari’s hair’s breadth victory in the last fleeting moments of the 1933 R.A.C. Tourist Trophy Race and other races which revive nostalgic memories of Brooklands in its heyday and the thunderous roar of the German Mercedes and Auto- Unions as they swept the board at Donington. And, its excitement undimmed by time, that epoch-marking moment in 1947 when John Cobb streaked across the Bonneville Salt Flats at Utah—the first man to travel on land at 400 miles an hour. Based on a series of articles published in The Motor, supplemented by additional chapters and illustrated by over 45 photographs and specially-prepared drawings, Moments that made Racing History is a book to stir the memories and capture the imaginations of those to whom it is dedicated—racing drivers and motor-racing enthusiasts the world over.
