Favorite racing books

What are your favorite racing books? @Terence_Dove book is by far my favorite karting book but are there others worth a read? I enjoyed Mimo’s 4 cycle book but it was pretty basic. How about your favorite books on Motorsports in general? I’m reading Will Power’s at the moment and it’s pretty interesting.

@KartingIsLife I saw your post on the Kart Kraft thread and bought it. That’s what inspired the new topic :laughing:

Thanks for the mention @Racer_Rick12 !

Of course all the books in the KartPulse store ought to be compulsory purchases!!

My favourite racing book, which I read as a kid was Stirling Moss’ ‘My Cars, My Career’

I was fascinated by the way he described every car he ever drove in detail, and the driving tips he scattered around the book. It was a real eye opener into the nature of a highly successful driver’s mind.

Figured it would be easier to make a collage.

I’m a fan of the book Niki Lauda put out about his race driving.
