Item description for Motor Racing: Reflections of a Lost Era by Anthony Carter...
The British motorsport scene has always been renowned for brave innovation and this was certainly the case during the exciting time described by this book. An enthusiast's reflective pot-pourri, in words and intimate paddock scenes, photographed in black and white and color beginning from the mid 1950s and through the 1960s, when motor racing was still accessible to all, and, finally the 1970s when overt sponsorship and television changed the sport for ever. A defining era. Illustrated with 300 extensively captioned, many previously unpublished photographs. Including continental race circuits, the cars and the personalities. Essential reading for any true motorsport fan.

A little light on action shots Feb 25, 2006
The book is a decent personal perspective on this era in motor racing history, and some of the shots are quite candid. My only complaint is that there are a lot of still shots; cars and drivers sitting around the paddock. Could have used a lot more photos of cars at speed.
