Italian Sunshine

This lovely image is one of our favorite photographs. It shows that Klemantaski really knew how to pan for a perfect result, the car and driver are sharply in focus as they head into the afternoon sun and seeming to come forward against the blurred background. This was taken at the old Porfido corner¬†at Monza, […]

Fangio, Moss and B.R.M.

This bucolic setting was at the Dundrod circuit in Norther Ireland on Saturday, June 7, 1952.
