J M Fangio, signed Karl Ludvigsen, special edition

£149.95 (Sold out)

Slipcased, numbered limited edition (#26 of 100), signed by Karl Ludvigsen of his excellent profile of Juan Manuel Fangio: Motor Racing's Grand Master.

Fangio started racing in the 1930s in his native Argentina and was immedidately successful. He first raced seriously in Europe in 1949, planning on one season only but victories led to a change of plan and the creation of a legend. Driving for several famous teams Fangio won a record five Formula I World Championship titles before retiring in 1958. This book also takes a look at his implacably calm personality, his kidnapping in 1958, his ill-starred attempt at the Indy 500 and his magnetic appeal to women.
