Steve McQueen drove with a broken ankle to a stunning second-place finish in 1970. Dan Gurney watched the winner's trophy slip away when his Ford's engine seized a heartbreaking 250 yards from the finish line in 1966. Stirling Moss was handed a bottle of Coca-Cola during the 1957 race and politely returned the empty on the next lap. No other race in motorsports has evoked such epic tales of triumph, defeat, and gallantry. The 12 Hours of Sebring has a character all its own -- born from a tradition of attracting legendary drivers and teams for extraordinarily competitive racing. Author Ken Breslauer brings to life five decades of Sebring competition in this beautifully illustrated history. And the book's exhaustive appendix provides the definitive collection of Sebring facts, including year-by-year race statistics and an index of every driver who ever competed at Sebring.

Art Evans was a sports car racer in the 1950s on the West Coast who raced against, and became close friends with, Carroll Shelby. Their intense competition on the track became a lifelong friendship off the track. He and Shelby collaborated on many business projects over the years, including books, marketing projects, projects for the Shelby Foundation, and so on. In his later years, Shelby loved the books about his cars and similar topics, but his eyesight was failing to the point where he had difficulty reading, and really preferred the books that were heavy with photos. It was from that realization that Shelby and Evans decided to work on one last book together. They both combed through the Shelby archives and selected Shelby's favorite images from his racing career. That is almost the entirety of this book. It is packed with photos selected by Shelby himself, and the captions are quotes from Shelby's commentary on the action in the photo, as well as his memories. Unfortunately, Carroll Shelby passed away before the book was fully completed, but Evans, following Shelby's instructions, carried this final project through to completion. Filled with images that have never been seen in print, as well as images not published since the 1950s and 1960s, this final work from Shelby is a personally curated collection by the legend himself. If you are a sports car racing fan, Ford fan, Shelby fan, or any combination of the three, this book is a perfect addition to your automotive library.

Following the success of its sister volume, which covered the 1970s, this book features another classic era as Formula 1 - attracting growing interest via TV - became a mainstream sport. The 1980s saw the emergence of McLaren and Williams as the dominant teams. Normally aspirated engines gave way to more powerful turbocharged units, before the regulations changed in 1989 to favor non-turbo motors again. The defining drivers were Gilles Villeneuve, Alan Jones, Nelson Piquet, Nigel Mansell, Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna. The 1980s saw the demise of the privateer entrants as technology and costs escalated.
