Goodyear & Formula One Air Racing 1967-1995 (Vol. 2)

Retail Price: $24.00

By: Robert S. Hirsch

Air racing had its ups and downs, but by 1967 it was firmly established as a sport here to stay.

Goodyear & Formula One Air Racing books (Vol. 1 & Vol. 2) track technological developments which allowed faster speeds and greater safety.

Goodyear & Formula One Air Racing 1967-1995 (Vol. 2)

During this time, women pilots entered pylon racing, speeds continued to increase and concerns about saftey led to additional equipment requirements.

Bill Falck, Ray Cote, Jim Miller, Jon Sharp and others contributed so much to air racing's popularity, and Air Racing began to flourish in Europe. Reno became the center for air racing in the United States, although the sport's popularity led to more regional competitions.

The Formula One racing class is without question the most successful class in the history of airplane racing. It has seen more races, more pilots and more airplanes than all other racing classes combined in a half-century lifetime, and has experienced but one important change in its rules in all that time.

Moreover, it is the only formal air racing class to be exported from the U. S. to Europe, and the only class to be recognized by the International Aeronautics Federation (FAI), the world governing body for competitive aviation.

The photographs are previously unpublished. Bob Hirsch's scale drawings have been acclaimed internationally for accuracy and scope.
