    "The Kingfisher Motorsports Encyclopedia" is a treasure trove of information about a sport that captivates huge numbers of live spectators, avid enthusiasts and television audiences in almost every country of the world. Packed with stunning action photographs and state-of-the-art digital illustrations, this book truly captures the heady thrills of motor racing - its speed, innovation, cut-throat competition...and danger. The opening chapter examines the rise of motor racing from the late 19th century to today's money-spinning global industry. Section two presents a comprehensive overview of the many forms of motor racing, from monster trucks to nimble bikes, while chapter three delves deep into the techniques, technology and innovation that underpin the sport. 'Tracks and Races' takes a tour of the most famous circuits and brings to life the most memorable duels in the history of motor racing, and section five examines issues in and around the sport - the demands of being a driver; fans and the media; finance and sponsorship; as well as the darker side of racing, such as driver tragedies and race-fixing. The final two chapters celebrate motor racing's legends - the drivers, teams and cars whose exploits have made motor racing the global phenomenon that it is today. Rounding off the book are comprehensive facts and statistics, weblinks, a glossary and an index. Each chapter is capped by a dramatic 'Photo Finish' spread - a full-spread photograph capturing the triumph or despair of one of the pivotal moments in motor racing history, including Michael Schumacher clinching a record-breaking 7th Formula One world title, and Dale Earnhardt's emotional triumph at Daytona 500 after 20 years of trying. And with a free pull-out wallchart - full of facts and figures about Formula One, the World Rally Championship, MotoGP, NASCAR and IndyCar - "The Kingfisher Motorsports Encyclopedia" is the perfect reference and gift book to accompany this breathtaking and truly global sport.
