Built with Passion - The Story of Rail Racing by J R Davies. This is the fascinating story of how rail racing started (and how slot racing developed), looking back at the events that led to rail racing becoming the national electric model racing sport. Explore the world of the 1950s with many interviews of the people that were there at the time including the only woman national rail/slot racing champion, Ve Whitbread. The book showcases articles on Walkden Fisher, Tom Cook, Dave Day, Pete Mells and other such figures, with many wonderful rail car pictures including detailed chassis shots showing the detail and vast range of designs that were used. If you have any interest in slot or rail racing this book is a must, explaining everything you need to know about how it started. Overall, the book is a great window on life in Britain in the 1950's and the birth of a sport.
