The very beginnings of today's great sport of rallying
The predecessor of today's international rally sport, the alpine trials and rallies of 1910 onwards were an incredible test of endurance for early pioneers and their cars. Becoming ever more international, the event would continue in various forms until 1973. This book, written by a seven time Alpine Rally competitor, is an in-depth history of this incredibly demanding event. Illustrated with unique photographs and images of rally medals and trophies, this is an excellent book for the rallying enthusiast.
