Rivals - The Lancia D50 and the Mercedes-Benz W196
Rivals - The Lancia D50 and the Mercedes-Benz W196TBA
Product Reference: TSB1

Mercedes-Benz and Juan Manuel Fangio - Lancia and Alberto Ascari; at the beginning of 1954 it promised to be a match made in heaven but, sadly, the Lancia D50 was not ready to compete with the Mercedes W196 until the very end of the year. In 1955 there was a tremendous but all-too-brief battle at Monaco, but Ascari was killed a few days later and then Lancia pulled out of racing and handed the D50s to Scuderia Ferrari. Nonetheless, Chris Nixon’s account of the design and development of both cars and the races in which they took part makes for an enthralling read. 200 photographs ...

Mon Ami Mate - The bright, brief lives of Mike Hawthorn and Peter CollinsPrice: £69.99 (plus P&P) Enquiry Form
Product Reference: TSB5

This double biography takes the reader through motor racing in the 1950s via the exciting and dramatic careers of two of Britain’s finest racing drivers. Mike Hawthorn was a brash extrovert who courted controversy all his adult life, whereas Peter Collins was a cool charmer loved by all who knew him. Their great friendship began when they came together at Scuderia Ferrari in 1957, but it dulled their competitive edge and although Mike won the World Championship in 1958, they only won two GPs between them. Their story ends in sadness with Peter’s death in the 1958 German GP and Mike’s a few ...

Kings of The NürburgringTBA

There are over 300 photographs many of which have never been seen before and of course it contains those brilliantly researched anecdotes and personal touches that became Chris’ hallmark.



It is not simply a book about the history of the ‘Ring. It goes much further than that and highlights fourteen drivers who can rightly claim to be ‘Ringmeisters’. These were the heroes who not only ...
