Review

"I gazed for hours at this book and keep returning to it. Very entertaining and a great snapshot of history." - Totalkitcar

About the Author

The author began writing about motor racing, Grand Prix racing in particular, after he retired from a career in the insurance industry in London. He has followed the sport since childhood and took many photographs as a young man which were published by Veloce in 2005, revised and reprinted in 2007 - 'Motor Racing. Reflections of a Lost Era'. Contributions to other works followed. The author built up an intimate knowledge of the sport and it's personalities at a time when it was open to the enthusiast. Access to the paddock was always possible and the author has since been privileged to draw upon the experiences of numerous personalities he came to recognize all those years ago. That knowledge has been put to good use in these pages.The author began writing about motor racing, Grand Prix racing in particular, after he retired from a career in the insurance industry in London.

Access to the paddock was always possible and the author has since been privileged to draw upon the experiences of numerous personalities he came to recognize all those years ago. That knowledge has been put to good use in these pages.As a schoolboy SteveÆs passion for motor racing was fired by watching early television broadcasts and studying racing coverage in his fathers motoring journals. Employment allowed Steve to start visiting Brands Hatch which could be reached from home in Essex by bus, train, ferry, another bus, and a mile and a half walk! Car ownership opened up an ever expanding range of circuits and events to be visited always armed with his camera. It was a natural step for Steve to become a track marshal eventually going on to compete in a Ginetta G4 sports car followed by several seasons in 750 Formula sports-racing cars. Steve is a founder member of the Fressingfield Oily Rag Club (FORC), and regularly competes in classic saloon car racing in an Alfa Romeo.
