Product Description

Review

Tony Gardiner uses 150 previously unpublished photographs to illustrate the 96 art paper pages. The volume is arranged in chronological order covering the years 1961 to 1966. The book has an introduction to each year and then is made up of high quality reproductions of black and white photographs with the detailed captions giving a good amount of information. In addition, Gardiners own pencil sketches highlight some of Goodwood's more exciting moments that his camera did not catch. --Review from Classic Lotus Racer, February 2005

Motor Racing at Goodwood in the sixties, by Tony Gardiner is, as it says in the foreword, an unashamed exercise in nostalgia. It provides a pictorial record of Goodwood on race days. That includes the paddock, and spectators as well as circuit shots during six International Easter meetings, four Tourist Trophies and fourteen BARC Club meetings. Of course, by the sixties, it really means 1961-1966. The last club meeting took place in July 1966 as the circuit was deemed not able to cope with tile increasing speeds of the competing machinery. It is primarily a picture book with some atmospheric photographs of Cobras, GTO's, E-Types, Astons, Minis and Corvettes as well as a good sprinkling of single seaters. The period transporters look great! There is mention of who won particular races, but no detailed results. I particularly like the pencil drawings; illustrating Cooper, Frazer Nash and A.C. The Goodwood circuit and local area are described nicely and there are comments on the Motor Industry and Social Scene of the time. At £12.99 the book represents good value for money. It is published by Veloce and is one of several in the Those were the days series. --Book Review by Steve Lister for The 500 Owners Association Magazine, Autumn 2006

RACING DOWN MEMORY LANE If summer cocktails at the Goodwood Revival seem a long time ago a new book may help you get through the winter months. Featuring 150 photographs many never before published Motor Racing at Goodwood in the Sixties documents the racetrack's years from 1961-66. Published by Veloce, the work evokes the nostalgia and glamour of one of motor sport's most enduring venues. --Review by Dave Pollard for The Sunday Times, January 2006
