Many of the events were hosted on airport courses where late-model Ferraris, Maseratis, Jaguars, Listers, Porsches, OSCAs and Climax-engined cars such as Lotus, Cooper and Elva did battle with American V8-powered vehicles, such as Corvettes and home-built Specials. This book, the final one in a series of three, offers a race-by-race account of all 1961 and 1962 events in the South, from Novice Races to the concluding Feature competitions.
The author has scoured local newspapers of the period for race reports and results and interviewed many of the drivers, mechanics and owners that were involved in the competitions. He provides an exhaustive report of the time, vividly illustrated by period photographs, many from the archives of Bob Jackson, the acclaimed press photographer.
