Product Overview

By the start of the 1980s, the Brands Hatch motor racing circuit in Kent had become firmly established as one of the world?s classic tracks. It had grown from humble beginnings as a motor cycle grass track to become an internationally renowned facility, hosting top-class motor sport. During the following decade, under the stewardship of its entrepreneurial managing director, John Webb, this enviable position was reinforced, with the circuit hosting five consecutive Grands Prix, two at very short notice, from 1982-86, along with a host of other major international meetings as well as smaller, club events. Chas Parker spent many years visiting the track, and amassed an impressive collection of thousands of color transparencies, the majority of which are previously unpublished. This book picks up where his previous volume, Motor Racing at Brands Hatch in the Seventies, left off. It offers a very personal account of visits to the world?s busiest motor racing circuit during a decade of excitement and change, both on and off track, in the form of a scrapbook using the author?s own photographs, taken as an ordinary spectator from the public enclosures.
