After the Second World War, there were many motor-racing enthusiasts in Britain eager to try their hand at the sport, but it had always been prohibitively expensive. A group of enthusiasts came up with the original and ingenious idea of building racing cars of small engine capacity, thus reducing the financial outlay and bringing motor-racing within the reach of a greater number. The idea proved highly successful. In a few years the 500cc category was accorded international status and Formula Three racing was in business. This book outlines the development and important events in the history of 500cc motor racing, and it is hoped that it will stimulate or revive interest in an important era in motor-racing evolution. About the author Colin Rawlinson is a director and treasurer of the 500 Owners Association
