From a group of enthusiasts who took their fragile hybrid machines on a run through the Surrey countryside in December 1912, to the club's present involvement in Grand Prix racing in India, this wonderful book is a must-have for all fans of motorsport. Starting as the Cyclecar Club, the BARC developed as the Junior Car Club before becoming the British Automobile Racing Club after the Second World War. This proud organization was the first to crack effective handicap racing for different formulae at the Brooklands circuit in the 1920s, the first to stage night racing (which was achieved at Goodwood in the 1950s) and, in the modern era, the first club to run electric car racing. The BARC were also the first to stage a UK round of the FIA Touring Car series. The redevelopment of Thruxton in 1968 saw the Hampshire circuit become the BARC's HQ, but their portfolio of tracks in recent decades has expanded to include the Pembrey circuit in West Wales, Mallory Park in Leicestershire, and the Croft circuit near Darlington. Not content with being a major force in the UK the BARC now exports its experience, expertise, and personnel to assist Formula 1 events abroad as well as a variety of other formulae. From the old cyclecars to the modern Formula 1, the history of the BARC is inextricably linked with the history of British motor racing. With rare illustrations from the first 100 years of its existence, here is the ultimate history of one of the most important institutions in motorsport.

This book is an historical survey of women’s sport from 1850-1960. It looks at some of the more recent methodological approaches to writing sports history and raises questions about how the history of women’s sport has so far been shaped by academic writers. Questions explored in this text include: What are the fresh perspectives and newly available sources for the historian of women’s sport? How do these take forward established debates on women’s place in sporting culture and what novel approaches do they suggest? How can our appreciation of fashion, travel, food and medical history be advanced by looking at women’s involvement in sport? How can we use some of the current ideas and methodologies in the recent literature on the history and sociology of sport in order to look afresh at women’s participation? Jean Williams’s original research on these topics and more will be a useful resource for scholars in the fields of sports, women’s studies, history and sociology.

Cyclists were written out of highway history in the 1920s and 1930s by the all-powerful motor lobby: Roads Were Not Built For Cars tells the real story, putting cyclists center stage again. Not that the book is only about cyclists. It will also contains lots of automotive history because many automobile pioneers were cyclists before becoming motorists. A surprising number of the first car manufacturers were also cyclists, including Henry Ford. Some carried on cycling right through until the 1940s. One famous motor manufacturing pioneer was a racing tricycle rider to his dying day.
