Description

It was unusual for sporting events in the ’50s to be photographed in colour, so this archive is a real treasure, capturing the excitement and atmosphere from a golden age of British motorsport. Despite being unpublished at the time they were taken, these original photographs were unearthed 50 years later, sensitively restored, and then published for the first time in this book.

Images of Goodwood, Aintree and Brands Hatch feature classic 1950s racing cars such as Triumphs, Jaguars, Mercedes and Porsches.

See close ups of the action and many of the well known drivers of the time – Fangio, Taruffi, Stirling Moss, Masten Gregory, and many more.

Hardback in as new condition.
