SPORTS CAR RACING
WRITTEN BY DENIS JENKINSON
Published in 1982
Through this great series of photographs we can see clearly the changing face of motor racing over two decades, decades that were vital to the forming of racing as it is today. We can see the way the cars changed from what we now call vintage-style machinery to space-age technological speed devices. We can see the changing scene of the driver from the shirt-sleeved sportsman to the anonymous being in regulation gear, from characterful faces beneath primitive crash hats to faceless automatons in all-enveloping safety clothing. We can trace the way racing changed from competing on normal public roads to the clinical and scientific autodromes or speedways.
