At its core are definitive race reports filed by noted motor sport journalists, all of whom are regulars on the circuits and members of the ‘inner sanctum’ of writers who have access to the sport’s movers and shakers. Their reports are backed by the most complete statistical data available, including detailed lap charts, some of which are unique to this publication. While Grand Prix racing naturally takes centre stage, AUTOCOURSE has always covered the many other categories of motor sport that have flourished over the past half-century.

AUTOCOURSE, the world’s leading grand prix annual, celebrates its 69th year of publication in 2019. The 21-race Formula 1 World Championship season is covered in its usual full depth, with hugely experienced paddock insiders Tony Dodgins and Maurice Hamilton dissecting the drama and intrigue that are intrinsic parts of any F1 season. Their race commentaries are complemented by detailed results spreads, including lap charts and tyre strategies. Mercedes-Benz again proved the class of the field, with Lewis Hamilton bidding to win his sixth world championship, but they did not have it all their own way. Ferrari’s new star, Charles Leclerc, became a triple race winner, whilst erstwhile team leader Sebastian Vettel struggled to find the form that made him a four-time world champion before winning the Singapore Grand Prix. In addition, the ever-resourceful Red Bull Racing, with the exciting talent of Max Verstappen, scored dramatic victories to justify their decision to switch to Honda power. Below the top three teams, Renault sought a return to past glories while locked in battle with McLaren and Racing Point for fourth place in the constructors’ championship. Highly respected Mark Hughes looks at the technical developments behind all the competitors in his team-by-team review, enhanced by Adrian Dean’s beautiful F1 car illustrations. In addition to Formula 1, the sport’s other major categories are all afforded ample coverage. The Formula 2 and Formula 3 championships, key rungs on the professional single-seat ladder, are chronicled, as is the rise of Formula E, which is rapidly gaining considerable support from major manufacturers. In sports car racing, the all-conquering Toyota, once again, won the Le Mans 24-hour race. Also covered are the door-banging exploits of the leading touring car series – the World Touring Car Championship, DTM (German Touring Cars) and the British Touting Car Championship. From the other side of the Atlantic, Gordon Kirby provides his usual insightful analysis of the US racing scene which majors on the compelling action of the ever growing Indycar series and the gruelling 36 race NASCAR series. AUTOCOURSE provides the most comprehensive record of the year’s sporting action, complete with results, published anywhere in a single volume. It is required reading for motor sport fans the world over.

This is the story of a Grand Prix formula that no British constructor wanted but which became one that they would almost totally dominate. It has remained largely overlooked due to the perception that the cars were underpowered and hence unspectacular. Such a perception ignores the significant technical developments that took place that are now taken for granted, such as monocoque chassis construction. It saw the career of Stirling Moss come to a premature end, but in his absence the rise to prominence of a new breed of British drivers in Jim Clark, Graham Hill and John Surtees. Over 200 photos and contemporary technical material outline the engineering achievements as well as the exploits of the constructors. With a foreword by Raymond Baxter.

Tracing the history of Grand Prix racing since the inaugural race was first held on a wartime airfield at Silverstone in 1950, this book examines how motor racing has evolved in spectacular fashion, developing from a minority sport followed by a dedicated few into the worldwide spectacle it is now. Although the book is broadly chronological, it does not describe every race ever run since the creation of the FIA Driver's World Championship, instead it captures the flavour of each period and identifies the trends and technical developments that characterise it. The history also includes a detailed results section.
