Boreham: a history of the racing circuit
Author: Bryan Jones and John Frankland
ISBN: 0 86025 493 3

In 1950 a series of races for all formulas of racing cars was organised on the Chelmsford airfield and in the following three years many famous names of motor racing were there, including Mike Hawthorn, Bernie Ecclestone, Brian Shawe-Taylor, Roy Salvadori, and Reg Parnell (to name but a few).

From 1951, motorcycle racing also took place, with John Surtees, Ken Kavanagh, and Bill Bodice. This all ended in 1952, since when private events have been held, recorded here. Illustrated with photographs of the car and motorcycle stars in action. There is a foreword by Stirling Moss, who has driven vehicles on the circuit since it closed to the public.
