|Rozměry v mm:||250 x 250|
The compellingly self-confident, handsome, gifted race driver, and mechanical genius Frank Lockhart has long captured the imagination and curiosity of generations of automobile racing fans as a classic example of the "What if he had lived?" enigma. Even today, there remains a certain mystery about Frank's amazing talent and fearless driving ability. There also have been a sizable number of myths about his life that have grown up over the years and have been repeated so often they have become accepted as the gospel truth. In a careful historical effort to set the story straight, authors Sarah Morgan-Wu and Jim O'Keefe have combined their efforts to delve into all aspects of Frank's life and career. They have left no stone unturned in an attempt to verify every bit of information. It is to their credit they have uncovered much long forgotten or hidden information that sheds important light on the true nature of Frank and his remarkable if all too short flash of brilliance on the stage of American automobile racing. Lavishly illustrated, with fully documented charts of Lockhart's race record, extensively detailed appendices, sourced and fully indexed, the publication is dust-jacketed, hard-bound with symth-sewn binding, and printed in full color on archival paper. Lockhart is the inaugural publication in The Racemaker Press American Racing History Series. American automobile racing history is a field of scholarship still open to research. In an attempt to take on crucial parts of this field and to fill gaps earlier works did not cover in extensive detail, Racemaker Press has initiated a series of scholarly books devoted to specific subject matters such as personalities, drivers, tracks, marques and other points of specific scholarship.
