Books - Runways and Racers 1952 - 1954 (Author: O`Neil)

Runways and Racers 1952 - 1954   (Author: O`Neil)  by Books

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
weight 1.5kg by Terry OíNeil
With road racing getting more and more popular with the rise of imported sportscars and home grown machinery too, speeds were increasing and the public road courses were starting to give concerns for public safety. This saw a ban in many states and the SCCA suddenly had a problem with a lack of facilities. At the same time the US Air Force were short on funding to improve the living facilities at their air bases and head of Strategic Air Command, Curtis LeMay, came up with a solution. The racers would have access to the airfields to race and the SAC would take the net profit for the Airmanís Living Improvement Fund. A happy solution for all concerned, or it was until complaints led to an audit and the races were stopped after just two years. Extensive research from the author sees every race covered in great detail with descriptions and maps of the tracks used at each event, reproductions of promotional material and over 150 photographs, a number of which are in colour and a great many that are previously unpublished. Many familiar names appear on the entry lists and we see lots of interesting machinery in the photographs. There are plenty of potential modelling subjects here.
