Motorsport Images presents over 23 million snapshots of history
Motorsport Network launches Motorsport Images, documenting over 100 years of iconic photography. Viewing is a must for anyone fascinated by historic racing
They say a picture speaks a thousand words, and if you have a car with provenance there’s no better way to display it than with historical photos. Motorsport Network has launched Motorsport Images, a new site that brings together over 23 million professional images dating back to 1894.
Motorsport Images combines the extensive archives of LAT Images, Sutton Images, Rainer Schlegelmilch’s portfolio and Giorgio Piola’s technical drawings. The new website allows users to intelligently search the archive for specific events, moments and vehicles ranging from early grands prix to the latest BTTC race.
- LAT Archive: The Goodwood Festival of Speed’s most memorable moments
- LAT Archive: The greatest moments of the British Grand Prix
- Looking to buy a competition car? Plenty here
If your car has a competition background, then Motorsport Images likely has a range of shots starring your pride and joy in action. These images can then be licenced and added to your car’s portfolio ready for sale or display.
If you’re writing a historical motor sport book or article, the LAT archive will be of particular interest to you. It contains over 12 million images that include rare depictions of events such as the very first grand prix in 1906, Senna piloting his MP4/4 through the streets of Monaco, and Lewis Hamilton winning his first-ever Formula 1 World Championship. It is quite simply the largest photographic archive in all of motor sport.
James Allen, Motorsport Network’s EMEA president, said: ‘We have been painstakingly transferring photos that date back to 1894 into the Motorsport Images archive. For the sport, its fans and generations to come, we are proud to say that we are protecting the history and heritage of motoring and motor sport.’
Motorsport Images isn’t just for collectors and businesses, though – it’s for motor sport fans, too. It includes a curated fan homepage of the latest events that have recently taken place. If you’re into Formula 1, Le Mans, IMSA or NASCAR, you’re in for a real treat.
You can even sign up for the Motorsport Images newsletter to view the latest images each week, and soon you will also be able to order premium limited-edition framed photography from Motorsport Gallery.
