Book reveals unseen history of motorsport; MOTORS.

A NEW motorsport book contains more than 300 unseen photographs of paddock scenes covering almost quarter of a century.

Motor Racing - Reflections of a Lost Era by Anthony Carter contains the unpublished photography from 1956 to 1979.

There are photographs of the author's visit to the Ferrari factory in 1967, continental road circuits then and now, cars and personalities from a bygone era and an enthusiast's tale of motor racing.

Apart from six months with the British Racing and Sports Car Club, the author had no professional involvement with the sport and so writes from the other side of the fence.

His photographs gathered dust in his attic before being rediscovered during a house move and now represent a unique archive of the period. The book costs pounds 36 and is published by Veloce.
