Long ago, somewhere around 1968 I heard That Certain Sound. While others at the time wanted to either dance or fight in the streets I just wanted to race. Actually I was never one for driving, so becoming a photographer was the next best thing. Of course back I was still at school but drew inspiration from monthly doses of Motor Sport….……powerful JuJu.
Michael Cotton, Andrew Marriott, Mike Lawrence and Denis Jenkinson inspired me to follow this course…..as did Pete Lyons and others………blame them for this mess. Also throw in Pedro Rodriguez and Jo Siffert plus Porsche 917s and Ferrari 512s to the mix and it becomes a perfect storm.
But it is not just looking back, 2011 is shaping up to be a great year, with the InterContinental Le Mans Cup giving endurance racing a proper setting.
