Product description

The roaring engines of the formative years of motor racing evoke images of the enormous machines that dominated the circuits of the early 1900s, from the rumbling pre-World War One 12 litres engines to the sob of the supercharged Bugattis of the late 1920s.

These digitally remastered recordings, originally available on vinyl as part of the Stanley Schofield Sound Stories collection, document more than three decades of engine and race car development. 

This is mechanical progression charted in sound.

Itala, Mercedes-Benz, Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, ERA - the list of stars is a who's who of the icons of motor racing. Immerse yourself in the extraordinary engine notes recorded at historic meetings at Silverstone, the Prescott Hill Climb, the Brighton Speed Trials and Oulton Park.

The authoritative tones of Lord Montagu of Beaulieu's narration, scripted by Laurence Pomeroy, deliver fascinating and detailed technical explanations, which reveal how these era-defining sounds were created. 

This is an extraordinary and essential addition to any motorsport fan's collection.

'All credit to Duke for re-releasing these 1950s recordings on CD. Vintage Variety has Lord Montagu delivering a kind of Reithian Lecture on vintage exhaust notes, to the accompaniment of every type of snarling racing car' Octane
