Unlimited Air Racers: The Complete History of Unlimited Class Air Racing, 1946 Thompson Trophy to 1991 Reno Gold

Unlimited Air Racers: The Complete History of Unlimited Class Air Racing, 1946 Thompson Trophy to 1991 Reno Gold - Don Berliner My first read about 'Unlimited Class' air racing. And not the last. Some like Formula 1, some like Nascar, I am sure that I like air racing involving 'warbirds extreme'. (Someone once said: Jets are for kids ;-)

The author takes you through every year the book covers in a sports reporter style. Both in respect of the races them self and the tech acheivements. He also relates the history of the people behind. Maybe not in in-depth but he does it very well. I felt entertained and enlightened.

The book only covers the periode to 1991 so I guess the hunt is on for more, and more recent, books on the subject.

Take care
