Description

The Maserati 250F raced against Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Vanwall for Grand Prix supremacy during the 2500cc Grand Prix Formula years of ’54-’60.

Synopsis

Competing throughout the 2500cc Grand Prix Formula years of 1954-60, the Maserati 250F is one of the most famous and iconic racing cars ever built. Maserati 250F In Focus is one of the most detailed accounts ever written about a single model, and this superbly illustrated book features photographs by Tom March, one of the 1950s leading motor racing photographers, along with historic engine cutaways, chassis drawings, and technical descriptions of the 250F’s evolution and development.
Anthony Pritchard’s lively and informative text includes reminiscences from some of the leading drivers of the day, including Sir Stirling Moss, Juan Fangio, and Mike Hawthorn – drivers who raced these historic machines during the halycon days when Maserati battled with Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, and Vanwall for Grand Prix supremacy.
From the 1954 Argentine Grand Prix, to the 1960 US Grand Prix, a record of the chassis and race numbers of every 250F to have competed during this period is presented, along with detailed race histories and results, completing this most comprehensive and authoritative of books on Maserati’s racing legend.
Independent Reviews

There have been a fair few books on the 250F, including an excellent one by the late Dave McKinney, but this new one from prolific UK writer Pritchard is a valuable addition ... I found it a very enjoyable read.
New Zealand Classic Car

This is probably the definitive history of the type.
Austro Classic - ****

A superb rounding up of facts and figures, enough detail indeed, to satisfy even the severest critic.
Retro Speed

A NUMBER of books have charted the success of the Maserati 250F, but none in as much detail as this. The book looks great, too, with hundreds of colour and black and white pictures capturing the car in action on the track and up close.
Auto Express

Every race during that period that a 250F competed in, from GPs to club events, is covered in this book, accompanied by an excellent collection of monochrome photographs - some familiar, such as the famous shot of Fangio powersliding through the fast downhill swerves at Rouen in 1957, and some rarely seen before - which are reproduced in Veloce's usual superb production quality ... essential reading for any enthusiast with an interest in this halcyon era of the sport.
Speedscene

This useful reference work [...] stands as an epitaph to one of our sport’s most dependable historians ... contains all the useful bits in user-friendly format.
Motor Sport

A fitting tribute to author Anthony Pritchard. It is as comprehensive as you would expect ... and there is a plethora of superb photos.
