Product description

Phil Hill, a lowly California mechanic who, defying all expectations, became the first American to win the Grand Prix championship. In the tradition of "Seabiscuit" and "The Right Stuff," Cannell's high-octane narrative evokes the lives of the daredevils who tempted fate each Sunday by driving well over 150 mph without benefit of seat belts or roll bars. Written with the pacing of a novel, "The Limit" pits Hill against his Ferrari teammate, German Count Wolfgang Von Trips, as they jockey for the top spot throughout the 1961 season, culminating in one of the deadliest races in Grand Prix history. "The Limit" captures a distinct moment when men the world over were driven to push the boundaries of the possible.

Review quote

"Fred Stella's worldly sensibilities and ease with European languages bring Old World nostalgia to the traditions and culture that make this story so rewarding." --"AudioFile"
