This book captures the uniquely American atmosphere of the Detroit Grand Prix (1982-1988) and a bygone era in Formula 1 racing. Roger Hart's compelling black-and-white photographs and accompanying recollections convey the relaxed camaraderie among drivers and a sense of fun that is hard to imagine in today's more intense paddocl area: Nelson Piquet playing frisbee or Keke Rosberg telling jokes.
Hart's portraits are of familiar people at various stages of their lives and careers. Here we find a youthful Ayrton Senna besides veteran drivers like Niki Lauda and John Watson, both nearing retirement. These intimate character studies, punctuated by exciting race action, evoke a strong sense of nostalgia for teams and drivers from an era that eill never be repeated.
