Lap of Honour: A Photographic Journey With Sir Stirling Moss [9781785315558]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Lap of Honour offers a journey back to the golden age of motor racing, through the lens of a revived 60s schoolboy photographer. Tim Hain revisits his favourite haunts and heroes, and hitches a ride with Sir Stirling Moss, whose colourful foreword kick-starts the journey. 'I can't believe Tim has never held a press pass,' Stirling writes. 'His pictures are really great.' Here is a true 'fan's eye view' with evocative pictures and stories spanning 56 years, from 1962 to 2018. At the first Goodwood Revival in 1998, Hain's interest was reawakened after 35 years. All he wanted was a picture of his first hero; but he went on to photograph Moss in 33 cars, with his input on each, creating a unique portrait of 'The Maestro'. Tim encounters and interviews other 60s legends, candidly snaps a host of stars on and off the track, and gathers contributions from the likes of Murray Walker and musician Mark Knopfler. Lap of Honour has an intimacy, a sense of humour and a story behind every picture that makes it unlike any other book on motor racing.
AUTHOR: As a professional singer, guitarist and songwriter, Tim Hain is adept at crafting words. He is at heart a storyteller with many avenues of expression - music, photography and writing. Lap of Honour is his first book, with stories and pictures spanning 56 years. In the pipeline is a treatment for a 'coming of age' film; a fun compilation of unlikely encounters with eminent people entitled Fame At Last; and a collection of his latest songs.
