Racing in the dark : when Britain conquered Le Mans

Grimsdale, Peter2021
Books
This is the inspirational story of the Bentley Boys, and the Le Mans 24-hour race of 1927 that sealed their astonishing place in history. Using the frame of that extraordinary race, in 'Racing in the Dark' Peter Grimsdale paints a picture of a remarkable car at the historic moment when petrol overtook steam, and will explore the lives and motivations of a generation of dedicated men who were determined, above all, to blot out the enduring shadow of the First World War.
