SHELL - HISTORY OF MOTOR RACING - THE HEROIC DAYS - (1902-1914) - VOLUME 1 - PART 2 ---
This is a must watch for all motor racing enthusiasts. It covers the very early days, with superb, if occasionally slightly artistically flawed, original footage of the pioneers at venues like the Grand Prix de l'ACF in Dieppe, Northern France, right the way through Type 35 Bugatti's racing at Monaco, Auto Unions and Mercedes-Benz of Nazi Germany in action at the original Nurburgring and 250F Maserati's with all the famous drivers.
A very comprehensive and unique chronological history of what was an exhilarating, dangerous, competitive and largely amateur sport until the outbreak of WW2.
