Autodrome finally arrives

Two months later than expected and a year and a half after it began, the book I've been photographing has finally arrived!

It's great to see it in print and Veloce Publishing have done a great job of laying it out, whilst SS_Collins has written it superbly.

I know some on the forum have pre-ordered it, and to you I apologise for all the delays - I just hope you think it's worth it!

If anyone gets their hands on it, all comments are welcomed (positive or otherwise...).

Gavin

Finally! Fantastic news...I can't wait to see it all put together, knowing how hard you and sam worked on it! I'm sure it looks fantastic, nobody would know about the piccies if you hadn't said anything, you perfectionist you!!

I must batter Sam for a copy...although that will be hard with him being in Barbados!!

Anuauto has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!

Lol anuauto! I don't think so...although he might be on my list when he gets home!! Hes been lounging around in bars on the beach mainly.

Robert...The full title is Autodome: The lost circuits of Europe. Its about the history (in some cases a bit sordid) of now disused race circuits in various countries in Europe. As for getting it try amazon and places like that.

Robert:
wait until the middle/end of next week and have a look at amazon.de under english books. yet it is there but with a wrong title and with that it appears as not available. ive sent em a correction. they state that a correction needs 2-5 days. If you can wait a bit longer you might safely get it over germanys amazon

I really like books about circuits, especially the older and forgotten ones. Im really looking forward to this one and will get it as soon as possible (trouble at amazon germany,see above)

I've been waiting to get my hands on this book for ages, since it was advertised in MN last year. I didn't know it was put together by a couple of ten-tenths members. Well done guys, at least i know where to come if i don't like it

Yes, it was shown in MN as at that point Sam was working for them. Pictures and ads appeared for it a long while, and some I think before it was even finished.

Having seen the pdf's I can't wait to get my hands on the finished article. Heres hoping that it is a great success!!

Thanks Andy for taking the time to sort out amazon.de - I spent a long while getting things sorted for the uk site and even now they're not right but never mind!

All comments gratefully received but negative ones will be directed straight to the publishers...

Charters had several copies on their stand at Doningon on Sunday. Had a quick flick through, looks good.

I like it! Its one I'd have in my collection (even if I hadn't written it) because its so nice but would rarely pick up because - its too nice to read almost - Gav's being a perfectionist about the pics as usual I think they look great which is what I really like about it.

Does that makes sense? doubtful but I am jet lagged.

I only wrote it because I wanted to read it. Gav's pictures are something great
