Books - Classic Racing Engines (Authors: Ludvigsen)
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Classic Racing Engines Weight 1kg by Karl Ludvigsen First published in 2001, this welcome reprint highlights fifty of the most significant engines in the history of motorsport. We start in 1913 with the 3-litre Peugeot and finish with Mercedes’ 1994 Indycar unit. There are one or two obvious omissions, BMW’s M12 Turbo units for example, but there’s no arguing with the choices that are included, from type 35 Bugatti, BRM V16, Mercedes straight-8, Climax FPF, Matra V12, Porsche flat-12 and of course the Cosworth DFV. Each engine has several pages dedicated to it describing specification and usage and there are photographs and technical drawings to illustrate each one. At the end there is a glossary of terms but if you need to look up what a shell bearing is or how the four-stroke cycle works, you probably wouldn’t be reading this in the first place!
Over the years we have created a library here at GPM and many collectors regularly ask us which books we use most and which are the most reliable source of information. We offer quality titles selected for their reference material content.
