mm, 224 pp
This book gives readers a look at Grand Prix racing’s top drivers by way of its top photographers, the father and son team of Bernard and Paul-Henri Cahier. Bernard Cahier began shooting F1 in 1952. In the late 1960s, he was joined by his son. Their images, reproduced here in all their brilliance, capture some of the most memorable, even legendary, moments in the history of Grand Prix racing. These incomparable photographs, beautifully printed in rich black and white, comprise intimate portraits of seventy-two of the sports’ greatest drivers from the 1950s through today.
|Ronnie Peterson: A Photographic Portrait
|Alan Henry||2008||1844255484||Hardcover, 279 x 229 mm,
Along with Stirling Moss and Gilles Villeneuve, Ronnie Peterson is widely regarded as one of the fastest drivers never to have won the Formula One World Championship. Like Moss and Villeneuve, the modest Swede was also massively popular in his day and remains something of a folk hero to today’s nostalgic fans, who recall his spectacular exuberance behind the wheel with such affection. This superbly produced book brings Peterson’s career vividly to life through stunning images sourced exclusively from LAT, the world’s largest library of motor racing images.

writer and story teller.
|Cliff Allison - From the fells to Ferrari
|Graham Gauld||2008||978 1845841508||Hardcover, 252 x 210
mm,144 pp, 105 illustrations
This book is the biography of Cliff
Allison who started motor racing over fifty years ago with a little
Cooper 500. Very much a countryman at heart Allison was not one of
the party-going racing drivers but a driver with a huge ambition to
race in Formula 1. He and Graham Hill competed in the first grand
prix race for Colin Chapman’s Lotus team in 1958 and scored the
first world championship points for Lotus. He later joined Ferrari
and won the Argentine 1000kms sports car race with American
co-driver Phil Hill as well as being a member of the Ferrari grand
prix team in 1959 and 1960.
|Jochen Rindt, uncowned king
|Hardcover, 292 x 232 mm,
Even today, when motorsport fans speak of car control they mention Jochen Rindt. Bernie Ecclestone believed he was the top talent of his era, Jackie Stewart said he was one of the cleanest drivers he had ever raced against, and he remains the sport's only posthumous World Champion. This investigation of Rindt's mercurial career paints the portrait of a man taken long before he reached his true potential and puts an underwritten character into his real perspective, as one of the greatest Grand Prix drivers of all time.

|with Philip Porter||2009||978 1907085000||Hardcover, 402 x 352
Follow Sir Stirling Moss through his most turbulent, demanding and, ultimately, successful racing years.

The book is packed with personal insights from Moss, on and off-track images and jet-setting glamour. It also features a rare interview with Stirling's first wife, Kate who shares her memories of the dangers and pressures of the sport.

|Nigel Mansell, Staying on Track: The
|After finishing as
runner-up three times in the drivers' world championship, in 1992
Mansell finally secured the title. It was the crowning achievement
of a hugely successful career, in which he won 31 Grand Prix, a
record for a British driver that stood until Lewis Hamilton
overhauled him in 2014. Always an aggressive driver, his exciting
style meant he was hailed as a hero by his millions of fans in the
UK and around the world. Out of the car, he was outspoken and
charismatic, which merely served to enhance his reputation.
Now, 20 years after he retired from F1, Mansell looks back on a stellar career in which he battled against many legends of the sport, from Lauda through the Senna and Prost years and on to Schumacher. He provides vivid insights into what it was like to race against those greats in an era when the risks to drivers were enormous. He explains what motivated him to get to the top, and takes the reader behind the scenes to give an unrivalled insight into the sport and the key moments of his career. Still closely involved in Formula One, Mansell assesses how F1 has changed, and gives his authoritative verdict on the sport, the cars and the drivers.
