Covering all 90 events that Phil photographed “for the folks back home” between 1950 and 1962, and including his full collection of more than 1250 supremely evocative (and often vanishingly rare) images, ‘Inside Track’, the Collector’s Edition, comprises two volumes lavishly produced on the finest Italian art paper. Both volumes are hardbound with cloth-covered cases, inset front and back with photographs and presented in a single cloth-covered slipcase.

Volume 1 covers the years 1951 to 1956, from Phil’s visit to Pikes Peak as a spectator in 1951, through his early minor-league races around the USA, leading to the start of his international racing career on the Carrera PanAmericana in Mexico in 1952 and at Le Mans in 1953. Volume 2, meanwhile, covers Phil’s great years with Ferrari from 1957 to 1962, a magical era for motor sport during which he famously won the Le Mans 24-Hours three times and, of course, the Formula 1 Drivers’ World Championship in 1961.

Included in both volumes are many behind the scenes photographs taken at the great circuits of Monaco, Monza, Rouen-les-Essarts and of course Le Mans, and also at such lesser known but wonderfully exotic sports-car-racing venues as Havana, Buenos Aires, Hawaii, Caracas and beyond. Neither is behind the scenes development ignored, as Phil’s camera also captured numerous images of testing on the fabled Modena Aerautodromo. And then he takes us to the Bonneville Salt Flats for Land Speed Record running with MG. Photographed almost exclusively on Kodachrome, ‘Inside Track’s photographic colour reproduction has to be seen to be believed.

Interviewed at length by his longstanding friend Steve Dawson, son Derek and renowned motor sport historian Doug Nye, Phil provided fully detailed and often hugely entertaining captions for every gorgeous image. A comprehensive list of his race appearances and results will also be included, together with a full index covering each volume.

Inside Track: Phil Hill, Collector's Edition (Vol I & II)

Absolutely superb evocation of the fifties motor racing world in splendid Kodachrome colors. By far the most beautiful motorsport-history book of my collection. Phil Hill's private collection of pictures is just awesome !

Par (Château-Thierry, France) le 11 Sept. 2019 (Inside Track: Phil Hill, Ferrari's American World Champion) :


Je connaissais la carrière du pilote et avais pu admirer quelques unes de ses photos lors d'expositions. J'ai longuement hésité devant le prix...élevé de cet ouvrage . Il s'agit du plus formidable témoignage existant sur cette période d'un certain "age d'or" de l'automobile.
Aujourd'hui, ces 2 tomes ont été rejoins par "The Autobiographie".
Au-delà des témoignages anecdotiques et photographiques Phil Hill nous permet d'entrer dans l'intimité du sport automobile des années 1950 et 1960.
