Indianapolis means to America what Formula 1 is to the rest of the world. These two cultures have been living their own lives for over a century, even though they have 'touched' each other several times along the way.
In this 162-page thick (12, 95, info @ autowoordenboek.nl.) Booklet with beautiful black and white drawings, the history of the 500-mile race of Indianapolis is plotted against that of the European Grands Prix for the first time - with surprising similarities and equally surprising differences.
The booklet is full of facts and concepts and has a pleasantly high 'browsing factor'.
Author Henk Wagenaar Hummelinck is also the publisher.
His portfolio consists of a wide range of (technically tinted) automotive books.
