Description

Goodwood Remembered is a unique collection of previously unpublished photographs, sketches and recollections of Peter Redman, an enthusiastic spectator.

As well as over 150 of his photographs from the late 1940s and 1950s, Peter Redman has included more than 50 sketches of cars and drivers of the period and 13 of his cartoons that help bring motor racing at Goodwood between 1948 and 1960 to life.

The book is full of interesting snippets. Bernie Ecclestone’s second place in a 500cc race, and World Champion Juan Manuel Fangio nursing an “off-song” Cooper-Bristol into sixth place in a Formula Libre race, are just two examples.

It is a fascinating insight into the range of racing cars and drivers at Goodwood in that period: from World Champions such as Fangio, Farina and Hawthorn to handicap races for lady drivers.

Goodwood Remembered will be of great interest to anyone who remembers those times and for the huge number who follow historic motor racing or want to know more of the roots of modern motor sport.

Hardback in as new condition.
