 This book is an absolute must for Revivalists and all lovers of motorsport.

All the pictures were taken with an M3 Leica, and all the action shots with a Leitz 135mm Hektor lens with an aperture of f3.5: this meant that to get decent shots you had to be very close to the action, as many of the pictures reveal ...

After nearly 50 years, Martyn discovered the forgotten transparencies and taught himself to digitize them and to repair the damaged pictures.

All these rare images vividly recall a very different era of motorsport and, collectively, recapture the spirit of motorsport in the 1950s.
