Visitors to Autosport International feasted their eyes on some of the world’s newest and most celebrated racing and motor cars – but they were also treated to a host of eye-catching photographs from the Motorsport Images archive.
A host of images all the way up to present day from five of the world’s renowned and well-respected photography houses LAT Images, Sutton Images, Rainer Schlegelmilch, Ercole Colombo and Giorgio Piola were on display in Hall 1 at Autosport International.
With an extensive collection that spans back to 1895 and with over 23 million images in the vault capturing some truly iconic motorsport moments and memories, fans relived the past with some of the best photographers to grace the trackside of circuits around the globe.
The 25 limited edition prints on display marked the history of motor racing but also provided a real insight into the world's leading motorsport and technical drawing archive.
The Motorsport Images feature also hosted preview screenings of “An Enduring Legacy” - a documentary exploring the intricate stories of how photographers have captured the very best shots that have gone on to inspire generations, whilst creating a catalogue the most recognisable names from motorsport’s past.
Also on display was the March 701 car that Sir Jackie Stewart raced to victory at the 1970 Spanish Grand Prix at Jarama.
