Book Review - Legendary Race Cars

Legendary Race Cars by Basem Wasef

by Basem Wasef

Over the years, there have been only a handful of race cars that have earned the moniker “legendary.” Likewise, there are just as few drivers who can add themselves to that list. Legendary Race Cars, by Basem Wasef, pairs those renowned automobiles with the drivers who made them great in a tribute to the top race cars in history.

With a foreword by renowned British racing driver Sir Stirling Moss, this 176-page book chronicles the history of both vehicle and driver with a detailed explanation of each, illustrated with vivid glossy images of these classic automobiles. No matter the style of race car, this book manages to cover any and all types imaginable, from the world-trekking Thomas Flyer of 1908 to NASCAR champion Richard Petty’s Plymouth SuperBird from the 1960s and Formula 1 racer Michael Schumacher’s Ferraris of the late 1990s and early 2000s. Racing fans and car enthusiasts will love this book and shouldn’t stop reading ‘til they reach the finish!
