A second generation racer, Alberto Ascari was, like his father, "tempted...charmed by speed". Ludvigsen tells the story of this incredibly fast driver who won the World Championship in 1952 and 1953, winning an amazing nine GPs in succession and a total of eleven of the 15 GPs held over those two years. No one driver has ever dominated GP racing the way Ascari did and Ludvigsen brings his story to life in this beautifully illustrated and brilliantly researched biography of the last Italian to win the World Championship.
