Overview

Throughout the last 120 years, since the pioneers of the motorcar, there have been milestones, setbacks, and world-class engagements in transportation. British motoring, in particular, held the world stage on numerous occasions in terms of car design, innovation, and outstanding sporting achievement. Here, Keith Ray explores every aspect of the motoring world, from its humble beginnings to the vital importance it has today in all of our lives, chronicling every interesting event in the industry. Read here how those first cars had to be driven behind someone carrying a red flag, how many policemen it took to change a traffic light, when the first traffic warden appeared, and more. With fascinating facts and figures, this book contains everything the car enthusiast would ever want to know about the British motoring industry.
