DONINGTON PARK: THE PIONEERS

This isn’t a book just about motor racing. It's about people. It’s about the pioneers who created Britain's first permanent true road racing circuit...firstly for motor cycles in 1931 and then also for cars from 1933.  It’s about the phenomenal success and dramatic progress that saw the circuit expand from loose-surfaced tracks created for horse-drawn carriages to hosting four pre-war Grands Prix, the first in 1935, the final two the "Silver Arrows" Grands Prix of 1937 and 1938. It's about how the Army took over during the war years and the many attempts that came very close to bringing racing back in the 1960s with innovative, state-of-the-art facilities...and it describes the Tom Wheatcroft era from 1977, son Kevin’s revival of the track in 2010 and the New Vision of MSV's first full season in 2018.  Researched, written and designed by John Bailie, the book includes many new photographs plus documents, maps and diagrams, unique then-and-now images, illustrations by the author, personal anecdotes and memories, together with extracts from on-the-spot race reports by Bill Boddy MBE, founding editor of Motor Sport magazine.

BOY’S OWN STUFF! EARLY DAYS AT SILVERSTONE & SNETTERTON

The post war years of British domestic motor racing were ones of immense change and expansion. Where the early meetings were, by necessity. filled with pre-war cars, and indeed, many a pre-war driver. By the middle of the 1950s there were new names and vastly differing shapes and sounds to appreciate. Given that, of the pre-war circuits, only Crystal Palace survived for racing, all be it not until 1953, Silverstone was investigated by the Vintage Sports Car Club and then seized upon by the British Racing Driver’s Club as a suitable if wind-swept venue. Snetterton was developed from another ex-Wartime Military Air Station into a racing circuit more than worthy of International events. This book shows the early, more care-free days of these circuits. Where the recognised "Aces" of the day could be engaged in conversation in the paddock: where one could expect to see a Le Mans winner dicing with a chap from down the road in Cambridge who has bolted the car together himself. From club racing and 500cc "Buzz-Bombs" through sports cars and saloons to full on Grand Prix machinery, all are here. Shown in wonderfully period black and white shots. All professionally taken, but never before used.

FORMULA 1 & MONZA IMMAGINI DI UNA CORSA/A RACE IN PICTURES

Finally available, “Formula 1 & Monza” is a significant work recounting two realities – the Monza Autodromo and Formula 1 – that have always been inextricably linked by a single celebrated event: the Italian Grand Prix. From back in 1948, when the World Championship had yet to be born, Monza was welcoming cars from the “blue ribbon formula” to the track winding through the Royal Park. This long and fascinating story of drivers and races, of tears and joy, is told in a rich volume presenting through rare and spectacular photos both the racing and the human side that has always been such a feature of the Italian Grand Prix. Featuring in the first part of the book are the over 60 editions of the race while in the second the story is developed with a series of portraits of those drivers whose name has become associated with the history of the Autodromo and those teams that have written unforgettable chapters in the history of motorsport on the Monza track. Adding further depth are chapters on the boundless passion of the Monza crowd – such a major part of the history of this race - the evolution of the circuit, the Autodromo as a film set or a privileged setting for long test sessions or an incomparable stage for the many VIPs who have always populated the paddock and pits. Tracing the history of the one and only authentic “Temple of Speed” is Enrico Mapelli, a Monza journalist and a great expert in the history of the Autodromo past and present. His story is illustrated with around 900 colour and black and white photographs, many previously unpublished and most drawn from the publisher’s own archives (specifically the collections of the photographers Erminio Ferranti, Danilo Recalcati and Franco Villani) or from other professional photographers who gravitated around the circuit.
