Formula One: Made in Britain is one of Formula One's last untold stories. As a centre of technical excellence for over thirty years. Britain is at the sharp end of the worldwide motor sport industry, and playing ever harder to win. Most of the sport's Grand Prix teams are based in the UK and many of them have British managers and designers who act as a showcase for the UK's skill base - past, present and future. The success of Britain's Formula One industry has gone largley unrecognised outside the close-knit world of the racing aficionado. Now, with Formula One: Made in Britain, Clive Couldwell reveals what makes this industry tick and why many of the world's players choose to come here. He explores Motorsport Valley, an area which covers the south and Midlands of the UK, where 75 per cent of the world's single-seater racing cars are designed and built, and talks to many of F1's leading lights. Winning in F1 depends on innovation and performance-critical engineering, and in this fascinating and insightful book, Clive Couldwell show how UK research and development are leading the world.
