Description

Motor Racing - Reflections of a Lost Era is an evocative and nostalgic look at a defining era in motorsports, which is documented in words and intimate photographs, both black and white and color. It takes the reader from the mid-1950s through the 1960s, when motor racing was still accessible to all, and into the 1970s when overt sponsorship and television changed the sport for ever. 

The author

Anthony Carter trawled the paddocks of motor racing circuits at home and abroad during what many consider the golden age: the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s. Many of his own photographs appear in Motor Racing – Reflections of a Lost Era, his first book published by Veloce. Both cars and personalities came under the close scrutiny of Anthony’s lens at long abandoned but fondly remembered venues. The old Nürburgring, Reims and Rouen vie with today’s circuits such as Le Mans, Silverstone and Brands Hatch. Anthony had to fit in his motor racing experiences around a career in the insurance world, based in London. Maybe it contributed to a freshness of approach. Anthony unashamedly admired his heroes – many sadly no longer with us. Retirement living in East Anglia gave Anthony the opportunity to chronicle his experiences, and his second book, Motor Racing: The Pursuit of Victory (1930-1962), was also published with Veloce, and features many of Anthony’s original photographs.
