    “Among motor racing people, Autocourse is the book everyone looks forward to at the end of the year… It is also very significant that many prestige advertisers regard Autocourse as one of the essentials, and their presence undoubtedly adds to the stature of the book.”Sir Jackie Stewart AUTOCOURSE sustains its reputation for providing its readers with the most comprehensive and insightful analysis of this complex and intriguing sport, both on and off the circuit. For over sixty years, it has covered the Formula 1 Grand Prix World Championship with complete round by round coverage. Editor Simon Arron travels to every one of the twenty rounds to give first-hand coverage of the championship in his unique and witty style. The vastly experienced Alan Henry adds an insightful commentary to each race focusing on the hot topic of debate that inevitably surfaces around each race. Other features include the much-debated Top Ten Drivers, in which the editor assesses the performances of the drivers throughout the year and ranks their efforts on the basis of their performances taking into account the machinery at their disposal throughout the 2012 season. No writer is better placed than Mark Hughes to handle the Formula 1 Team-By-Team Review. His in-depth analysis reveals the reasons for the successes and failures of each of the twelve Grand Prix teams as they battled for supremacy. Special features for the 2012 season will include a celebration of Williams Grand Prix Engineering, marking their 35 years as a manufacturer that has included seven world driver championships. The F1 editorial content is supported by wide ranging reviews of all the important international categories including the GP2 and GP3 feeder series, Formula 3, Le Mans and Sports and GT cars, Touring Cars, and the United States scene, where Scotland’s Dario Franchitti took his third victory in the Indianapolis 500, and new-look Indy Cars began to rebrand the image of single-seat racing in the USA. The book is completed by, easily the most comprehensive results round-up to be found in any one volume.

    The first major authorized biography of NASCAR founder, Bill France Sr.Big Bill is the consummate "insider" book on the life and legend of NASCAR founder Bill France and tells the tale of a classic American success story. France Sr. brought his family to Daytona Beach, Florida, in 1934, put down roots and immersed himself in the business of racing, both as a driver and an owner. Nicknamed "Big Bill" because of his 6-foot-5 stature, he made significant contributions to the racing world - he founded NASCAR in December 1947, built Daytona International Speedway in 1959 and built Talladega Superspeedway in 1969, and landed the landmark R.J. Reynolds/Winston sponsorship deal in 1971 that not only transformed NASCAR but also transformed corporate sponsorship of sports in America.The France family has spent the last 30 years gathering a vast collection of files and material about their family patriarch and has turned over countless interviews -- both written and taped -- as well as NASCAR documents, memorabilia, memos, letters and various other materials to the author for this definitive biography. Big Bill offers NASCAR fans a rich, entertaining, emotional, and detailed story about America's most recognized and admired racing family.
