Evocative pictures of British Touring Car racing – the crowd's favourite – from the flares of the late 1960s to the turbos of 1990.

Independent Reviews

"Well worth a look." – Thoroughbred and Classic Car Owners Club

"These books make no claim to be definitive accounts of era. They're personal photo albums – and they're all the better for it." – Motor Sport

"Long captions give lots of info, so it's good value for a little 'un," – Octane

"A book of splendidly nostalgic photographs." – Speedscene

"Peter Collins' pithy captions perfectly complement his evocative photos." – Classic & Sports Car
