==== INTRODUCTION ====
This is the second part of the first volume of the most comprehensive history of motor sport up to the 1960s and is widely regarded by some as the best Motor Sport documentary ever made.
This set is a must have for all motor racing enthusiasts whether you are into modern racing or not. It covers the very early days, with superb original footage of the pioneers at venues like the Grand Prix de l'ACF in Dieppe northern France, right the way through to Type 35 Bugattis racing at Monaco, Auto Unions and Mercs of Nazi Germany in action at the original Nurburgring and 250F Maseratis with all the famous drivers.
There is current day (1960s) footage of VSCC racing at Silverstone too with some pretty impressive and rare machinery, much of which is was no longer in competitive use.
A very comprehensive and unique chronological history of what was an exhilarating, dangerous, competitive and largely amateur sport until the outbreak of WW2.
