Road Racing – Drivers of the 60’s and 70’s
By Linda Weldon
Autographed by the Author & Vic Elford.
Linda Weldon was an art student when she picked up a camera and headed over to Riverside International Raceway in 1966.
She retrieved a paddock pass and was then escorted in by none other than Stirling Moss, who was working as an announcer and local TV analyst. What an entrance.
Weldon used her access with impressive results, collected here in 100 hardcover pages with her black-and-white imagery. It’s heavily oriented toward candid photography. Unquestionably, that’s what gives this book its individuality: its depiction of drivers in elements where you wouldn’t expect to find them.
In the years depicted Motor Racing was deadly 38 drivers are featured in the book. Many of them are not with us anymore. Some photos are funny, some are poignant. Evocative material.”
