The crash helmets are not much more than a thin shell, the trees are standing right alongside the straights at Le Mans while spectators are standing so close to the track that their toes could easily be ‘bitten off’ by the Ferrari 156’s shark nose. Looking back, motor sport may have been dangerous in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, but the heroes from that era and their experimental and sometimes almost unmanageable racing cars still fascinate people today. Cars such as the unique six-wheel Tyrrell P34 or the brutish Porsche 917 stay in the memory. The black-and-white “Motorsport Classic” calendar from McKlein captures all that and takes you back to twenty-five great moments from the sport’s rich history. Every month, you get the choice between two different images depicting various top-level categories including Formula One, Sports and Touring Car racing as well as Rallying. All these pictures depict a particular moment in time and come with a brief narrative to give you an insight into the story behind the photo.
