Cameron Earl was only 25 when he wrote this historic work.
In writing the introduction to this book I sought to do justice to the remarkable career of its author, who researched the German racing cars and wrote the report at the youthful age of 25. The report has long been a talisman among racing-car enthusiasts and historians and it was an honour to be asked to introduce it to a new generation. Tragically Earl was killed when testing a racing car in 1952; he was not yet 30. This book is a fitting memorial to a career that held great promise.
This report, first published in 1948, covers the German pre-war activities in racing car design and production. It describes the Third Reich's involvement and attempts at the land-speed record with a Porsche/Mercedes Benz supercar.
