This book is about the pioneers who created Britain's first permanent true road racing circuit - firstly for motorcycles in 1931 and then also for cars from 1933.
It’s about the phenomenal success and dramatic progress that saw the circuit expand from loose-surfaced tracks created for horse-drawn carriages to hosting four pre-war Grands Prix, the first in 1935, the final two the "Silver Arrows" Grands Prix of 1937 and 1938. It's about how the Army took over during the war years and the many attempts that came very close to bringing racing back in the 1960s and it describes year with Tom Wheatcroft from 1977, son Kevin’s revival of the track in 2010 and the New Vision of MSV's first full season in 2018.
Researched, written and designed by John Bailie, the book includes many new photographs plus documents, maps and diagrams, unique then-and-now images, illustrations by the author, personal anecdotes and memories, together with extracts from on-the-spot race reports by Bill Boddy MBE, founding editor of Motor Sport magazine.
