Silver Arrows Warm up
1938 Mercedes Benz W154 and 1937 Mercedes Benz W125 of the Silver Arrows Collection, warming up at the 2012 Goodwood Revival. Both run on methanol based fuel, making the Exhaust appear smokey but the fumes are mostly water vapour. Irritating to the eyes, and very very LOUD!!





Dan Gurney Tribute Parade, Goodwood Revival 2012
To celebrate the incredible life and career of the hugely charismatic Dan Gurney, the 2012 Goodwood Revival featured a re-birth of the "Dan Gurney for President" campaign and a tribute parade of some of his most famous race cars. Ranging from a Lotus Cortina to his own AAR Eagle-Weslake, one of the most beautiful open wheel racers ever built it was truly a fitting way to thank the great man for the entertainment his passion for motor-racing has given us.





Anthony Carter @ Goodwood - motor racing nostalgia author interview
Anthony Carter began writing about motor racing, and Grand Prix racing in particular, after he retired from a career in the insurance industry in London. He has followed the sport since childhood, taking many photographs as a young man that were eventually published in his book Motor Racing -- Reflections of a Lost Era (Veloce 2005, revised and reprinted 2007). Anthony built up an intimate knowledge of the sport and its personalities at a time when they were more accessible to enthusiasts. Access to the paddock was always possible, and it has been Anthony's privilege to draw upon the experiences of the numerous personalities he came to know all those years ago as source material for his second book Motor Racing -- The Pursuit of Victory 1930-1962 (Veloce 2011). Motor Racing - Reflections of a lost era by Anthony Carter. ISBN: 9781904788102. A defining era in motorsport documented in words and intimate photographs, both black and white and colour, from the mid-1950s through the 1960s, when motor racing was still accessible to all, and the 1970s when overt sponsorship and television changed the sport for ever.

Probably for the first time, criticism is leveled at both Louis Stanley, and the introduction of the H16 engine as contributory factors to the failure of British Racing Motors. Louis Stanley for his freeloading extravagance, and the rather foolish decision by the management to specify such a complicated and bulky power unit.

Previously unpublished, stunning photographs from motor racing history, in a book that examines the many facets of Grand Prix racing before the dominance of television. A beautiful look at a fascinating time in motor racing. More info: http://tinyurl.com/7d6h52a Coming soon! Motor Racing -- The Pursuit of Victory 1963 to 1972 by Steve Wyatt. ISBN: 978-1-845842-85-7. Picking up where the first volume left off, this is a photographic journey covering a period of ten years in motor sport. Moving year by year, this book is written from the perspective of a passionate motor sport enthusiast of the day. Exciting, dramatic, sometimes tragic events are described on the spot, as seen over the driver or mechanic's shoulder. These are the events that often made headline news the following day, complemented by stunning, previously unpublished photographs. More info: http://tinyurl.com/73yatcu
