Motor Racing: A Century of Competition and Human Challenges 
Our review:
  The best general book on racing history I have yet seen.  This very large work is beautifully illustrated, and covers its vast subject in surprising depth, e.g., there is a separate chapter for the short-lived La Carrera Panamericana.  And of course, NASCAR, GP, Rally, LeMans, Targa Florio, Mille Miglia, and much more. 
Price:  $29.99  14 x 10 , 300 pages, 538 color and 458 b&w pictures, hardbound
