The second in a planned multi-volume set, this follows a similar format to the first publication which covered the 1960s. We are taken through each season in order, with the championship winning team shown first and then the remaining makers of chassis coming up in order of performance for the works teams. The seventies were a period with plenty of customer teams, and so the various privateers in Lotus, March and other chassis and are also detailed. Where a team’s car changed significantly over the course of a year, we see major developments highlighted. Along with the huge number of images illustrating the cars there is a written description of each team’s activity and tables showing drivers’ performances, race winners and championship tables. An excellent resource.
