Review: "An incredible photo memoir by Bill Warner. A journey through road racing that shows us the people, the cars, the delicate moments, the fame, the glory, the disappointment. Bill Warners affectionate yet realistic portraits and captions are the best collection Ive ever seen." -- Mario Andretti, 1969 Indianapolis 500 Winner, 1978 Formula 1 Drivers Champion
"Bill Warners eye behind the camera is exceptional. His photos become classics and I am so honored to be part of this exceptional collection." -- Hurley Haywood, 1973, 81 12 Hours of Sebring Winner; 1977, 83, 94 24 Hours of Le Mans Winner; 1973, 75, 77, 79, 91 24 Hours of Daytona Winner
"Composing with the camera has always been black magic in my book, for as a painter, I can adjust things a bit to get the image the way I want it. Bill, on the other hand, has to find it. Perusing this book is like settling down to a banquet of great images. I needed this book." -- Miles Collier, Miles Collier Collections
Bill Warner from a time when he pedaled his "Buick" tricycle until he strapped himself into the drivers seat of his Brabham BT8 racecar, has always been about cars and speed. He started his photographic odyssey in 1959 with a Yashica D camera, a Christmas gift from his parents and sister and continues today. He currently owns 13 "collector cars", including three historic race cars, a true California hotrod, and two 50s period Cadillacs. He still owns the 1971 Porsche 911 he bought new and ran in the 1975 Cannonball. In short, his life is all about cars. He lives in Jacksonville, FL.
