First edition. Quarto, pp 176. Bound in green cloth covered hard boards and in the original dust jacket, un-clipped (£4.95 net). Liberally illustrated with b/w photographs. Vanwall, founded by Tony Vandervell in 1954 had the distinction of being the first British team to win a Formula 1 race, when Stirling Moss and Tony Brooks won the British Grand Prix in 1957, and the following year became the first British team to win the Formula 1 Constructors’ Championship. Vanwall dropped out of Formula 1 in 1960 when rule changes made their cars uncompetitive. However the team ushered in an era of British dominance in Formula 1 motor racing.
