We have received a copy of the publication bearing the title quoted above. It is one of Clymer’s few mistakes. Not only are the illustrations generally of a low standard, but accident pictures and stupid cinder-track mix-up “shots” are encountered all too frequently. The captions to the photographs are in Americanese of the most unfortunate kind, and one of the few worthwhile pictures, showing Cappoli winning the Rio de Janeiro G.P. in a G.P. Bugatti, is coupled to a statement that a woman driver dashed into the crowd, and that a Brazilian driver was killed. This book emphasises a thought which has long been in our mind — what a pity it is that a country so generously provided with motor racing should be so addicted to cheap thrills and bloodshed.
