Mid-Atlantic American Sports Car Races 1953-1962 free pdf The history of sports car racing in the states of Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia and Washington DC in the 1950s and 1960s has long been talked of but never thoroughly documented until now. This is a story of a period when sports car drivers such as Jim Kimberly, Charlie Hayes, and Dick Thompson competed mainly for tin cups and glory on civil airport runways and private tracks before the age of professionalism took hold. They drove mainly European cars, Alfa Romeos, Allards, Austin-Healeys, Coopers, Elvas, Ferraris, Jaguars, Listers, Lotus, Maseratis, Porsches, and the American Scarabs, now highly valued by avid collectors. The histories of these cars are of great interest, and many are mentioned in this book by chassis number which will aid research by interested owners. A chapter begins with a synopsis of the activity in each year and is followed by detailed descriptions of the races. There is a comprehensive index, and the book is profusely illustrated with period photographs.
