In this book Karl Ludvigsen explores the 'prehistory' of Formula 1, its origins and evolution during the first half of the twentieth century

The front engines dominated the highest level of motor racing, from the first Grand Prix held in France in 1906 through most of the 1950s.

Ludvigsen describes the conception and construction of these racing cars, highlighting the many advances in chassis and engine technology that were made during the first few decades.

The final chapters of the book introduce the game-changing move to rear engines in Grand Prix cars after World War II.

Ludvigsen's carefully researched text is enriched with hundreds of archival photos, illustrations and designs along with colour photos of many of these historic cars in action.

Lending further authority to his history are dozens of first-hand accounts of early Grand Prix racing as they appeared in major automotive magazines of the time.
