The Birth of Formula One - 75 Years: The British World Champions Coffee-Table Book

The Birth of Formula One - 75 Years: The British World Champions Coffee-Table Book

£39.95  /  In Stock

This beautifully bound coffee-table book, with a foreword by 1992 World Champion Nigel Mansell, accompanies the Jersey Post stamp issue celebrating 75 years since the birth of Formula One, specifically dedicating itself to the ten British drivers that have achieved the ultimate accolade of World Champion. 

Award winning artist Keith Burns’ fabulously dynamic artwork features each of these champions of the sport, duelling with their rivals. From the brutally dangerous ‘50s and ‘60s where drivers such as Mike Hawthorn, Graham Hill and the extraordinary Jim Clark faced serious injury or a fiery death as an ever-present reality, through to those competing in the current era, mastering their incredible technological marvels of cars; drivers such as Jenson Button and the multiple title-winning Lewis Hamilton. 

This standard version of the hardback book does not include the accompanying stamp collection. For premium version with mounted stamps see here.
