There was nothing like the early Alpine Trials of 1910 to 1914 in Austria to take the motor car to its limits, as Rolls-Royce discovered in 1913. For those dare-devils who flirted with death, taking their fragile motors over mule tracks with totally unprotected edges, the Alpine was the ultimate challenge. Written by a seven-time Alpine Rally competitor and featuring rare photographs, this book charts the full history of this illustrious motorssport event.
