A RECORD OF MOTOR RACING AT CRYSTAL PALACE by Richard Page

£200.00
Rated 5.00 out of 5
Crystal Palace holds an important place in the heritage of motor sport in Britain. Today few remember that it was the scene of some of the first competitions for pioneering motorists. In 1937 a permanent road course was constructed. Its urban setting and railway-sleeper lined track provided spectators and drivers with the closest experience available to continental style street racing. Closing in 1972, the circuit operated in what many feel to have been the “golden era” of motor racing. Amongst many other things it witnessed the dramatic arrival of Austrian future world champion Jochen Rindt on the international motor racing scene.
