The secret horsepower race

Post

I’ve just started reading this.

Obviously it’s not directly F1 related, but it’s interesting and I figure there’s probably a few people here who would be interested in it too?

Hi Wil992, there is an entire thread on here (last of the great piston engines planes, or similar), the author was a contributor - and is still a member of the forum AFAIK.

Hours of happy reading and great tech!!
The more that I learn, the more I appreciate how much more there is to know….

I remember when I read “how to build a car”, Adrian neweys book, I was a little disappointed at the amount of technical content, it was entertaining enough, but more autobiographical than I’d expected.
With this, I think it’s the opposite. I’m not an engineer, I’m a software developer and former aircraft tech, so I’m desperately hoping I can hang on in there when it gets hard core techy.
We’ll see. 😀
