The book features a series of black-and-white photographs of stock car races in England. Race-modified production cars, some of them badly dented or covered in stickers, cars at a standstill, racing, flying through the air, colliding; scenes before and during the race, taken from and on the stands, from the edge of the track, and in the pits; drivers, mechanics, spectators; scrap heaps and brightly polished engine bonnets. The photographer’s eye is directed not just at the event itself, but also at its social environment as a whole.

As you leaf through the printed pages, the double-sided photographs of what was originally a slide show create the impression of a projected sequence.

The layout and the emotionally charged images are such that you feel transported back to the 70s. It’s British motor racing in its purest form.
