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.
