The speed and action of motor sports puts exacting demands upon photographers. The necessary skills are taught, one step at a time, through detailed technical discussions and 180 color photographs which demonstrate race day strategies in practice. Topics include lenses, filters, film, camera supports, and other equipment, as well as metering and exposure, selecting shutter speeds, and high-speed flashes. Creative aspects such as framing the subject, using color, cropping, image editing, and even how to get a press pass to shoot in the pits, make this hands-on guide equally valuable for both digital and film photographers of all skill levels.

Goodwood in the sixties epitomised all that was good about the British motor racing scene. It was a circuit where anybody could have a go, and yet the established greats like Stirling Moss would be there too. It was a circuit where Minis rubbed shoulders with Ferraris and Ford Galaxies, MGBs diced with Triumph TRs and Morgans, and clubman’s races were as keenly fought as RAC Tourist Trophy events. Most of all Goodwood was accessible and informal: spectators with no special privileges could get really close to the action, examine the cars in the paddock, and meet the great drivers of the day. Tony Gardiner was a regular spectator at Goodwood before the popular Sussex track was forced to close in 1966. His fascinating photos remind us of an era of motor racing very different from today’s, and illustrate an amazing variety of machinery, from Lotus Cortinas to Aston Martin Zagatos.

“ ...When the idea of this book was first suggested to me, although I had no misgivings as to the interest of its subject for myself and those immediately concerned, I had some misgiving as to my ability to make it interesting to the general reader. I may say that this misgiving is by no means abated now that I see the finished result of my labours. But I felt a very earnest wish, which will be understood by those who have ever been in the thick of any exciting or momentous experience, to preserve, if only for my own satisfaction, some record of the early days of the motor-car in England and my own experiences in connection therewith, and to reconstruct some of the events of those exciting days before my impression of them should become blurred. In this way my book may perhaps come some day to have an interest of its own, when the world shall have forgotten that the thing we call the Motor Movement ever had a beginning ...” Charles Jarrott - September, 1906. (Charles Jarrott was an English racing car driver. He won the 1902 Circuit des Ardennes race and competed in the 1903 and 1904 Gordon Bennett Cup races.)
