My interest in history some would say, has been in a very specific part of history …
That is .. the history of fast cars …
History tells us that the early record breakers were generally based on
and inspired by the early and earliest of racing cars.
What fanatics, like me, have learned from researching those heady days of record breaking activity
is that the technology used then has filtered back in to everyday motoring,
which gives many of us both great driving and race going pleasure today.
In those early heady days, even before World War 1 ordinary cars went faster and a new breed of car
had sprang up … the SPORTS car .. how awesome is that?
Sports cars .. fast ones … have therefore been around for a really long time and have been entertaining us for a long time too !
