Ferrari Grand Prix Moments
Formula One Photographs, 1954–1966

This portfolio of his images of the Ferrari Formula 1 team bears testament to the easy access that was available at the time, showing the cars from close up and stars such as Fangio, Hawthorn and Surtees in unguarded moments in the pit and paddock.
Autocourse Official History of the Indianapolis 500
The unsatisfactory crushed rock surface of the original Indianapolis Motor Speedway was replaced in 1909 with over three million bricks, providing a state-of-the-art track for the first '500' of 1911. This history of the most famous motor race in the world reveals how 'the Brickyard' was built and developed and recalls the landmark moments of its premier event, from the pre-war daredevils and the British champions of the 1960s to the technical changes and political difficulties of recent decades.

The Romance of Motoring
This reprint of a classic first published in 1933 explores the history of the automobile, dating back to 19th-century steam cars, and the challenges and achievements of motoring in the 1930s. Its final chapter speculates on the qualities of the 'new' diesel engines (cheap and free from fumes and smoke) as well as imagining a future of driverless lorries or electric cars powered through the road.
