More than likely, you know what he's like, especially as Chaters are bound to have copies!

Andy77 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

after getting the book yesterday around noon i started to read it, forgot about time the whole afternoon and finished reading it early evening.

The book caught me for a couple of reasons.
Since english isnt my natural language i have sometimes pretty hard times with english written books and usually have to put a vocabulary next to the book i read.
Autodrome is other there. It is pretty easy to understand and at the same time really exciting.
The mix of photographs is pretty nice. The pictures of today giving it some really good atmosphere.

Being addicted to the history of circuits, yes it is one of my hobbies aside from trying to bring em in pc racing games, especially the chapters about Brooklands, Crystal Palace, Keimola, Masarykring and Linas-Montlhery caught my interest since I never found much about this circuits.
just the thought that people raced circuits like Monza, Brooklands ...and so on in cars wed call tanks today really impresses me.

The pictures , especially the sunrise/sunset ones looking really really nice. with some imagination anyone can really feel how cars must have roared through.

After all it was a very enjoyable, exciting read. Im truly impressed and want to thank S.S. Collins and Gavin D. Ireland for their great work.

I finally got my hands briefly on a copy. I didn't get to read it as Sam quickly put it away again. Maybe I'll get to read it soon.

Gav, sorry I didn't look in here before writing you the other day, meaning the bit about the photo reproduction...I hope the disappointments weren't too frustrating, although I understand completely, it is very frustrating when you know that files were well prepared and you end up with inconsistencies--and anyway, its our job and our nature to be picky s.o.b's about that sort of thing!

So again, congrats to both of you and I hope that Goodwood was a good venue for plugging it, its probably the ideal spot for some exposure when you think about it, and hopefully with numerous book purchasing spectators! BTW, from the photo put up in the last post, the cover looks great.

All the best to you both with it.

well its all worked out nicely Autodrome, is very close to selling out and its been confirmed that it will go to a second edition. So keep them firsts in good nick becase they (hopefully) are gonna be sought after.

As for Signed copies I think there are only perhaps 50 in existence if that. Niether me of Gav actually have a fully signed copy - thats how rare they are

good to hear that, continued "all the best" (now go to bed, its quarter to one ;-) )

tech question, is it possible when a reprinting run is done, to diddle with the photo files (assuming all the various factors will be the same-ie printing press, paper stock etc etc etc) for Gavin to tweak shots that he wasn't happy with?

just curious, if it was me, I would be tempted to find out thats all.

nighty night

Ok I've decided the time has come to close the book on Autodrome - there will be two more book signings - one at Autosport International this weekend and one at Solitude in Germany in April. If you book isn't signed by then it won't be. I want to dedicate time to a new non motorsport book project. So if you want a signed one be at the show where chaters have the last first print run stock for sale.
