motor racing
reflections of a lost era

by Anthony Carter

Published 2005 - 208 pages
10" x 10"
$130

Another one of my favorite reads. Covers 1956 thru 1979, however, the main emphasis is on the sixties and into the seventies. Well written and excellent photos. Originally the front cover ‘sold’ me – bought it without looking inside. What an era!

the world atlas of motor racing

by Joe Saward

Published 1989 - 224 pages
10" x 11"
$25

What makes this book stand out is the details on all the international circuits with illustrations by Jim Bamber. Not sure if the cover picture of Nelson Piquet really indicates the content of this book. I think the publisher wanted an ‘eye catcher’ on the book stands. Much more going for this publication than a stock F1 photo – apologies to Nelson, he was a great champion..

This very collectible book is the result of the amazing career of Denis Jenkinson.  'Jenks' was truly a one off.  He was a photographer, writer, racer and all round motor racing guru.  This was one of his last books which covers the whole history of sports car racing.  'Jenks' is also most famous as Stirling Moss' navigator in the 1955 Mille Miglia aboard 722 Mercedes.

This boxed limited edition is sold out and I am told by Goodwood it is unavailable and will not be reproduced.  It's a very complete history with some great chapters by drivers such as Jackie Stewart, Sir Stirling Moss and many notable drivers of the period.  An emminently collectible edition.
