Having in my shelfs books such as the Sports cars racing in camera or the Quentin Spurring 24H Le Mans series, and I don't hesitate to state that the quality of the pictures by Schlegelmilch is impressive. Even the black and white look amazing, displaying a beautifull grain typical of the nostalgic photographic films.
It is well organised in chapters for each of the circuits covered in its pages: Nürburgring, Le Mans, Targa Florio, Monza, Spa-Francorchamps, Brands Hatch, Österrichring and Watkins Glen, plus two other chapters featuring the Internacional Race of Champios and the Can-Am. The stars, you can imagine... The pictures are not seen in any of the books I mentioned above.
The text is minimal: there are one column for each circuit describing briefly its characteristics and the races held that years and also a column for probably the most notable drivers at the moment: Brian Redman, Phil Hill, Vic Elford, Hans Herrmann, Jacky Ickx, Pedro Rodríguez, Henri Pescarolo and Jo Siffert. There are also columns written about John Wyer, Enzo Ferrari and Ferdinand Piëch. No stastics included in this book.
I trully think this book is a must for anyone interested in the years that are read in the title and I can't help recommending it. Enjoy!
If you are hoping for details of grid positions and lists of race winners etc then look elsewhere. This book is purely about the photos; lovely shots of race cars from a great era of sports car racing. For those wanting more detail on grid and race positions etc, try the 'Sports car racing in camera' series by Paul Parker, the Le Mans 24 books by Quentin Spurring, or the various sports car racing picture books by Janos Wimpffen (jolly expensive).
This Schlegelmilch book is great. Full marks to Konemann for publishing the book at a very reasonable price.
