Road Racing, Drivers of the 60's and 70's

4.6 of 5 stars 4.60  ·  rating details  ·  5 ratings  ·  3 reviews
This book is a compilation of pictures taken at a time when photographers were able to get very close to the action. Using a Nikon camera with various telephoto lenses. Tri-X and Plus-X film was utilized. Each shot had to count, so very little color was used.

I was recently asked by Linda to review her book, "Road Racing, Drivers of the 60's and 70's", and I am so glad she did! Obviously the photography aspect of it interested me, but when combined with the fabulous history she has shared about these elite drivers... it was completely enchanting.
