More than 800 historic locations to discover and visit in the British Isles by Julian Hunt
Britain is rich in motor sport history. So rich that I’m sure all of you would be able to name at least 15 motor racing venues in the country.
Multiply that by more than 50 and you are geffing close to the number included in this book, which features venues from Beechwood Park sprint course in Markyate, England, to Wicklow Memorial Sprint in County Wicklow, Ireland.
Realising how much car-based sport has taken place not far from your front door is one of the pleasures of this book, which also gives locations you can track. It’s not often that a book’s back-cover claim holds true once you delve into its pages, but the words “an essential guide for anyone interested in Britain’s motor sport heritage” couldn’t be closer to the truth.
