This book is a trip down memory lane, recalling the days when Formula 5000 cars roared around the race tracks in Britain and Europe, creating a lot of noise and, occasionally, dust. The wail of a 5-litre engine was often more spine-tingling that ANY other racing car! Nowadays, many of the same cars show modern day spectators just what Formula 5000 was, back in the day. Few, if any, of the drivers are prima-donnas and many want to know what their car did before it came into their possession. This book answers those questions and many more.
