Only 2500 copies of the ACO’s new book have been printed. It marks the centenary of the Club and is a two-volume history in English in a slip-case. There’s a lot of content covering the years before the great race was created, and regarding races on the Bugatti circuit, but the main focus of the books is, of course, the 24 Hours. Each race is covered in six pages, though, so there’s not a great deal of room for in-depth race coverage. The results are thorough, but qualifying is not mentioned. There are sections on drivers, cars, other types of racing at the circuit and a history of track changes. Side-profile artworks of every winning car are included. It’s a great souvenir and could rise in value in the years to come. RR
