    Default RAF participation in the Schneider Trophy races.

    Can anyone recommend "the" book I should read about these races? I am specifically interested in the RAF High Speed Flight's involvement, and would like something that gives the names all the RAF team members for the various races if possible.
    Thanks,
    Allan

    Hi Allan,

    I've found for some years ago this book in a second-hand bookshop. There you also find a description of the Schneider Trophy races and competitors.

    British Racing and Record-Breaking Aircraft
    by Peter Lewis, published by Putnam.

    The Schneider Trophy by David Mondey and published by Robert Hale and Co. London in 1975 looks good
