Included are many interviews with the drivers who raced these exciting, weighty and always fast cars, including John Greenwood, Dick Gulstrand, Jerry Grant and Fast Phil Curring, among others. The book is illustrated with many quality photographs, supplied by General Motors and well-known motoring photographers; it also contains detailed specifications of the production cars, and road test reports. This book takes a detailed look at the racing Chevrolet Corvette from its inception, through production, and its subsequent updates through the years.

The Corvette was the only American sports car to gain international acceptance in this period. The book covers the often neglected racing history.
