Many of the now-prolific motor-racing annuals are out of date. Here is one which reports in detail and illustrates the 1971 F1 races, with supporting chapters on F2, F3, and F5000 and chapters on other topical aspects of the sport. Some of the type-face is very small, the illustrations are rather flat—good without being exceptional—and so quickly has this 1972 edition of a popular record of the past season’s racing been produced that the cover pictures depict Siffert’s Gulf Porsche, it being too late to erase them. A useful record to have on the bookshelf.—W. B.
