____________________

In the 1960s Enzo Ferrari emerged as the dominant force in sports cars in the world, creating speed machines that were unbeatable on the race track. In America, the Ford Motor Company was quickly losing ground as the pre-eminent brand. Henry Ford II saw a solution. He decided to declare war on Ferrari, to build a faster car than anything Ferrari had brought to the track, and to beat him at the world's biggest race, Le Mans. Ferrari was just as determined to see off this challenge from across the Atlantic.

With practically no safety regulations in place in the European Grand Prix races, horrific accidents were routine, with both drivers and spectators killed in many races. The stakes were incredibly high, money and men were thrown at the competition, neither Ford or Ferrari would accept anything but victory. The battle to become the fastest in the world truly became a race to the death.

Review:

"A must-buy for any motorsports fan" (Daily Express)

"All I can say is: Wow!...If you like cars - nay, if you have ever seen a car - you must read this book!" (Garth Stein, bestselling author of The Art of Racing in the Rain)

"Go Like Hell is a wonder, chuck-a-block with great heroes and villains, a pedal-to-the metal account of greed and gumption, a chronicle of obsession and vain glory. Don't worry about that seat belt. Just go for the ride." (Leigh Montville, author of At the Altar of Speed)

"Reliving the titanic battles between Ford and Ferrari that payed out in the mid-sixties at Le Mans . . . a riveting read" (Choice Magazine)

Book Description:

Ferrari vs Ford: in the race to build the fastest car the world had ever seen.
