Excited fans line city streets and crowd grandstands as sports cars roar across the circuit. From short races, where every second is critical, to grueling 24-hour endurance races, drivers push their cars to the limit, and excitement hangs in the air with the smell of gas and burning rubber. Fans love to see a finely tuned Porsche or Ferrari hug the pavement as it takes a turn at top speed. In this book, you will discover: how the sport began in Le Mans, France; how the sport evolved into two main classes of racing sports cars - Grand Touring cars and prototypes; and where you can find the greatest race tracks in the world.
