Some of those already posted look interesting to me. Think my motorsport library is going to get bigger very soon.

I'd also recommend two books with similar titles - "Alf Francis - Racing Mechanic". Alf was mechanic to Stirling Moss for many years and it is a fabulous read. "Racing Mechanic" by Ermanno Cuoghi is also good. He was head mechanic for the Gulf teams and later Ferrari during the '70s.
Finally, the most entertaining read is undoubtedly "Touch Wood" by Duncan Hamilton, 1953 Le Mans winner. Funny, poignant and downright outrageous at times!

Any good books to recommend?
I am anxiously awaiting the next book about Jochem Rindt,next year. Looks like a good read.
I know many of you have some great books out there to recommend....................................
Just to note: is the Ludvigsen book on Moss any good? Not looking for just a pictorial, but an in depth recount of his career and life.
You may be intersted in some of the books mentioned in this thread: http://srmz.net/inde...?showtopic=5580

"Mark Donohue technical excellence at speed" by Michael Argetsinger.

If you need something that has really good photos as well however ('Cars At Speed' has none), the best 'coffee table' book I've come across is 'The Jack Brabham Story' by Jack Brabham & Doug Nye. I also scored 'Legendary Race Cars' by Basem Wasaf for Christmas and would definitely recommend it too.

"Grand Prix Greats: A Personal Appreciation of 25 Famous Formula 1 Drivers"
Agreed...Nigel Roebuck is one of my favorites. "Chasing The Title" is also excellent and features a nice chapter on the 1967 season.

'Can-Am 50th Anniversary: Flat Out with North America's Greatest Race Series 1966-74'
https://www.amazon.c... by george levy
It's about Can-Am series, year by year. I'm now in the middle of 1969 season. But already I can recommend this book to anyone interested in motorsport of that era. Great pictures by Pete Biro, story, intresting imputs from drivers and mechanics are all there. So if you have free space on the bookshelf and some free money - buy it (price is down to 30$ now at Amazon, instead of 55$ when book was released last year)
