Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine This is a slightly strange but very beautiful book aimed at speed record enthusiasts. It isnít quite a history of British involvements in record breaking, the early outright LSRs of British cars with foreign drivers or British drivers in foreign cars are not counted, but of seemingly purely British efforts. We start with Parry-Thomas and Babs, there are three generations of Cambell, Seagrave, Cobb, Railton and the other great pre-war names. Itís not just about Land Speed Records either, the Water Speed Record also features heavily. Bringing us to the modern era there are many British speed record attempts on home turf, somewhat restricted by the lengths of runways available on our small islands, and many specialised class records such as the JCB diesel and Don Walesí electric Bluebird project. Itís all interesting stuff and there a huge number of superb photographs included.
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.
